New Port Richey in Pasco County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Seven Springs School, which was built on land owned by T.J. Witt, served local families from about 1913 to 1925. His widow later made the school into her residence and her son and daughter-in-law, Ed and Wille Maude Frierson, later lived in the building as well. Mrs. Frierson operated a small dairy after World War II. When the property was sold for development, the school building was moved in 1981 to Sims Park in New Port Richey and became the West Pasco Historical Museum.
This former pioneer settlement and early resort area is part of what is now Seven Springs Golf and Country Club and the Trinity Community.
Erected 2008 by The Pasco County Board of County Commissioners and The Pasco County Historical Preservation Committee.
