Everyone Has A STORY


15 years as a museum director has allowed me the privilege to be  both teller and listener of the stories. Transferring information allows all those involved to learn and experience emotions just by the fact they heard the story.  Dade City Heritage & Cultural Museum shares the story of its people through artifacts,interaction, story telling and events.


 Dade city started as a rural railroad town nestled in the hills of central Florida, now known as Pasco county. Located in our city is a beautifully preserved 1912 train depot and this houses our Heritage Museum and Welcome center.   Plan a visit to our historical depot, relax and watch the trains, ask questions about our city, its people, its past and our promising future. Spend the day in Dade City and Tell your story.


What a wonderful visit. We learned so much about a place we didn't even know existed. We were able to handle the artifacts Joy was telling stories about,making wonderful memories. The historical directions to local restaurants and wineries was fun. Most interesting was the stories about the stones. We will be back. Thank you to our tour guides at Dade City Heritage  Museum."
