The Edwinola was originally built in 1912 as a hotel. The name “Edwinola” is a combination of the original owners names, Edwin and Lola Gasque. Since it’s construction, it has been a favorite destination of travelers coming to the Dade City, FL area. The Edwinola would eventually go on to serve as a private residence, a restaurant, and in the 1980’s, it was turned into a retirement community.
Today, The Edwinola has gone through numerous renovations and re-openings (the most recent in Spring of 2017) as an Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care community. In addition to having new owners and management, renovations occurred in 2016 to enhance the current state of the building. These renovations were focused on upgrading the safety systems throughout the facility, updating the porch and sidewalk to meet ADA standards, general repairs and painting, and updating resident rooms to include Independent Living kitchenettes.
