Near Land O' Lakes in Pasco County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Concord Stagecoach Road
An archeological examination by Janus research - commissioned by Lennar Homes - revealed two prehistoric campsites in this vicinity, one of them datable between the seventh and fifteenth centuries.
About 1850, the Concord Stagecoach Line began regular passenger service and a relay station known as "26-Mile House," because it was 26 miles south of Chocochatte, was located in this vicinity. Stagecoach service was suspended during the Third Seminole War in 1856 but resumed afterward and continued through the War Between The States. Near the end of the 19th century, stagecoach travel was supplanted by the railroads.
Erected 2003 by the Pasco Board of County Commissioners, the Pasco County Historical Preservation Committee, and Lennar Homes, Inc.
