The Heritage

The History Of Epperson Ranch

Steeped in rich, Florida history is the property formally known as Epperson Ranch. This idyllic piece of landscape in Pasco County was in the Epperson family for four generations and was traditionally used for the farming of livestock and various crops. In honor of the family name and with respect to the beauty that surrounds this area we thought it most fitting to call our newest community Epperson. As the land was always deemed a place for economic and development growth, the Epperson family was thoughtful in having Metro Places realize a dream of not simply converting the area to pavement and houses, but igniting this area for jobs, education, healthcare and a true 21st century model of living.
