Pasco County's first permanent courthouse completed in 1889
Pasco County's first permanent courthouse, which was completed in 1891 at the cost of $7,000.  During construction of this two-story frame building, by local carpenters James Lee and H.C. Griffin,  county business was conducted in a temporary courthouse, which was provided by Coleman, Ferguson & Co.  By 1903 this first courthouse was enlarged and almost doubled in size, with an addition being built to the front right side and extending west.  In 1909 the Board of County Commissoner contracted the Mutual Construction Co., of Louisville, Ky., for consctuction of a new red brick courthouse at the cost of $34,860.  On January 3, 1910 the Board of County Commissioners officially accepted the completed courthouse, still in use today.  (Photo courtesy of former County Commissoiners Sylvia Young and David "Hap" Clark)
