City of Port Richey, Florida

Before it was incorporated, it was a vibrant community for fisherman and trappers. It was also an industrious Indian community and includes burial grounds for two Native American tribes. As other settlers arrived, word spread throughout the northern states about the comfortable winter seasons on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Adventurers came from the north to try their hand at fishing and hunting the local game. Today, Port Richey remains largely the same. It remains a fishermen's town and the people of this town take pride in their traditional ways.
