Pasco County was created from Hernando county on May 12, 1867. The area was first inhabited by Muscogee Indians and the first white men in the area came with Spanish explorer Panfilo de Narvaez in May, 1528. Narvaez fought the Indians near the Withlacoochee River before moving northward. Few white settlers were in the area until the 1840´s. It is the home of St. Leo College and is noted for citrus and naval stores.
