New Port Richey Information and Highlights

New Port Richey is a city in Pasco County, Florida. The city is located within the Tampa-St Petersburg-Clearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area. Approximately fifteen thousand people live in New Port Richey, which has an area of approximately four and a half square miles. The warm weather, seaside location, fantastic fishing, and abundant dining and nightlife destinations of New Port Richey make it a fun place to live an a great place to visit.  

History

In 1883, Aaron M. Richey sailed from St. Joseph, Missouri to an area near the mouth of the Pithlachascotee River. He needed a place to live and a dock to moor his schooner, so he purchased a small piece of river front property from a member of the Clark family and named it "Port Richey."

Aaron M. Richey later opened a post office in his home, as well as a general store in the area. Settlers began to move into the area, as news of the mild winters and abundant fish and game in the area reached the northern states. As the population in the area grew, the area around Orange Lake came to be known as "new Port Richey" and the older part of Port Richey came to be known as "old Port Richey." In 1915 a separate post office was established for New Port Richey, making the town’s name official.

In the mid-1920s the city became a winter home celebrities like Thomas Meighan, a leading actor in silent movies, and Gene Sarazen, one of the top golfers of the 1920s. In 1927, construction was completed on the Hacienda Hotel, a 55-room Spanish-style luxury hotel. The end of the 1920s Florida land boom stopped the influx of celebrities into the area, and the Great Depression had a devastating effect on the town.

New Port Richey and the surrounding area eventually recovered from the Depression, and beginning in the late 1960s, the area began a decades-long period of rapid population growth. The city’s current population remains fairly stable, held in check, perhaps, by its small land area.
