Pot luck - please bring a covered dish, your table service and drink (disposable plate, fork, knife, and spoon). For more information, please contact: historical society president, Glen Thompson,(352) 567-7449 or E-Mail: bookbollard @ iCloud.com . Historical society meetings are free and open to the public.

Friday, July 20, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the Pioneer Florida Museum & Village in the Main Building

The program will be delivered by: Jeff Miller

Pasco County Historical Society is excited to announce that the presentation for the July 20, 2018 meeting of the Pasco County Historical Society will be Jeff Miller, who has worked for over 20 years on an extensive web site devoted to the history of Pasco County. It is at fivay.org. Jeff is a board member of the West Pasco Historical Society and a retired math teacher at Gulf High School.
Known as the Pasco County Historian by some of the historical groups in the county, he is a great friend of the society and has contributed greatly to the history of our county.

His presentation will consist of showing high resolution scans of maps of Pasco County from the 1800s to today, with a discussion of the origins of the names of the towns appearing on the maps.

Whose idea was it in 1887 to name the new county for Samuel Pasco, as his second choice, and what was his first choice? Why was Hernando County divided into three counties instead of two, as originally planned? When the vote to name the permanent county seat was held in 1888, what town, which almost no one has heard of, came in second behind Dade City? What names of towns in Pasco County are unique in the United States? What town in Pasco County was named for a Washington D. C. post office official, to make sure the post office was granted? What proposed names for towns were rejected by the U. S. post office? Which towns in Pasco County were named for towns in other states? Which town is named for a German citizen and which were named for the hometowns of a German immigrant and a Russian immigrant? Which town is named for the heroine of a popular novel published in 1894?

Jeff will answer all of these questions in his presentation on July 20 in the Lockey Room at the Pioneer Florida Museum, at 7:00 p.m.. Guests are welcome.

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION:

A carry-in dinner precedes the program, so bring a dish to share as well cutlery for your personal use, plate(s), (disposable is fine) and your beverage of choice.

LOCATION: The museum is located 1.3 miles north of downtown Dade City, at the corner of US 301 and Museum Road, turn east onto Museum Road and cross the railroad tracks.
