Located in the heart of downtown, the Hacienda Hotel was a popular destination point for silent movie stars, artists, sports heroes, and social elites of the 1920’s. Over the years it also hosted special community events like proms, weddings, and much more. The historic property stands along the edge of the beautifully-renovated Sims Park, overlooking the river, and has been the center of many wild tales, legends, and local folklore.
Friends of the Hacienda & Historic New Port Richey is a volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is devoted to celebrating the unique culture and history of the City of New Port Richey, Florida. For more information or to join the effort to restore this beautiful and historic building, visit FOHH on facebook or at www.friendsofthehacienda.com.
