The 1959, 1960, and 1965 Gulf High School yearbooks have been uploaded to this page.

Nadine Robbins and Dottie Cleaves (photo) were visitors to the museum on March 28 and generously donated some old photographs of New Port Richey and Gulf High School, which are currently being added to our historic photos (link at the bottom of this page). Their grandmother taught music at Gulf High School beginning in 1924.

Thank you, New Port Richey Rotary Club! The club has donated $500 to the West Pasco Historical Society! In this photo taken at the board meeting on March 4, WPHS President Bob Langford accepts the check from Evie Parks, secretary of the NPR Rotary Club.

The Nov. 2014 WPHS newsletter is available as a PDF file here.
