The New Port Richey city government has been looking for photos of the Hacienda Hotel, the historic landmark on Main Street.
Patch wrote about that, and someone took notice.
Johnathan Grandage, archives historian with the State Library and Archives of Florida, sent us a lins to some historic photos of the downtown landmark from the state archive.
We decided to post the photos here. They were taken between the beginning of the 1930s and 1950s.
We haven’t seen these photos before, but you might have.
Have interesting photos of the Hacienda? Scan them and email them to New Port Richey City Clerk Doreen Summers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
