Built originally in 1912 as a beautiful hotel, the Edwinola was named after the blended names of owners, Edwin and Lola Gasque. For decades, it was a favorite for travelers and businessmen and a short ride from the Seaboard Railroad Station. The Edwinola also has served as a private residence and a restaurant. In the 1980’s, the hotel was purchased and turned into a retirement community.
Today, the community continues to celebrate the history of the hotel and Dade City through renovations and the reopening of the Edwinola as an Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care community. In addition to new owners and management, renovations of the community enhance the current state of the building. Renovations included an upgrade to the fire alarm and protection system, updated porch and sidewalk to meet ADA standards, repair and painting of the walls and common spaces of community, and an update to the Independent Living kitchenettes.
