Connerton is a census-designated place in Pasco County, Florida, United States, off U.S. 41.[2] Its population was 5,282 as of the 2020 census. Connerton Elementary was constructed in the area.

Connerton was built as a large housing development in 1923 by Buffalo labor racketeer William "Fingy" Conners.[3] The development was stunted with the downturn in the housing market, after a small portion of the full scale residential development was built out.[4] As of 2012 construction plans were once again moving ahead.[5]
