History

In 1883, Aaron M. Richey arrived from St. Joseph, Missouri, and settled near the mouth of the Pithlachascotee River. He established a post office in his home on July 9, 1884. In 1925, the city was incorporated as a municipality in response to the incorporation of New Port RicheY the previous year. The population has remained small, and proposals to abolish the city have gone before the voters several times. On February 21, 2019, Mayor Dale Massad was taken into custody by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement with assistance from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office and the local SWAT team on charges of practicing medicine without a license. He was later additionally charged with two counts of attempted homicide for opening fire on officers as they attempted to serve the warrant. The next day, Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order to remove Massad from office. Just 3 weeks later, Acting Mayor Terrence Rowe was arrested for several charges, including obstruction of justice and use of a two-way communication device to facilitate the commission of a crime. The charges were described as an "offshoot" of the charges against Massad. On March 20, the three remaining members of city council were unable to agree on a replacement. The city has been without a mayor since the arrest of Rowe on March 20. The mayor was removed from office on March 21, which left the city with no one to serve as mayor. Johnny Cash owned a home in the city from 1979 until 2002. Cash and his wife inherited the house from Maybelle Carter after her death, and sold it in 2002 shortly before their deaths in 2003.
