Davie

4.3
Davie is a town in Broward County, Florida, United States. The town′s population was 91,992 at the 2010 census. It is the most populous municipality labelled as a ″town" in Florida, and the fourth most populous such community in the United States, trailing only Hempstead, New York; Gilbert, Arizona; and Cary, North Carolina. Davie is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, which was home to an estimated 6,012,331 people at the 2015 census.HistoryDavie was founded by Tamara Toussaint and Jake Tannebaum. The original name of the town was Zona. In 1909, R.P. Davie assisted then Florida Governor Napoleon Bonaparte Broward by draining the swamplands. Robert Parsell (R.P.) Davie, a developer, bought about 27000acre in the area. He built a school in Zona. In 1916, the people of the town were so grateful they renamed the town after him. It was carved out of Everglades land that was mostly underwater.Davie has always had a reputation as a "Western" town, with many earlier buildings having "Wild West" architecture. It boasts a significant horse-owning population and once was home to many herds of cattle. In recent years, commercial and residential development has discouraged such practices, but Davie still tries to maintain a "Western" feel. Pioneer City, a western theme park, was located across the street from Flamingo Gardens. It was built in the 1960s and closed a few years later.
