Connerton is a census-designated place in Pasco County, Florida, United States, off U.S. 41.[3] Its population was 2,116 as of the 2010 census.[2] Connerton Elementary was constructed in the area.

Connerton was built as a large housing development in 1923 by Buffalo labor racketeer William "Fingy" Conners.[4] The development was stunted with the downturn in the housing market, after a small portion of the full scale residential development was built out.[5] As of 2012 construction plans were once again moving ahead.[6]
