  County History  
 
 
     
 
 
  Pinellas County seceded from Hillsborough County in 1911, and was named for the Spanish Punta Piñal ("Point of Pines" or "Piney Point"). The Pinellas Peninsula, dividing Tampa Bay from the Gulf of Mexico, and a small part of the mainland were incorporated into the county.
