Native American Exhibit

Our Native American exhibit includes information about West Pasco’s early history and cultures, like authentic stone artifacts dating back to the ice age. The displays include arrow heads and other types of projectile points, as well as pottery, from ancient Native American civilizations – including the Timucuan and Tocobaga.

Six Deptford vessels from the Timicuan culture were found in this area. One is on display in our museum – the other five are in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC.

Also on display are examples of Seminole “patchwork” tribal clothing colorfully designed to attract tourists after the Seminoles returned from the Everglades.

The wall mural in this room shows downtown New Port Richey in the 1920s.
