History & Culture

After World War II, the United States Navy purchased the area of Pembroke Pines in order to construct a flight-training field. However, during the 1950s, Broward County bought the land from the Navy, and families and veterans began to settle in the area. This increase in population resulted in a need for new highways and streets. Following hurricane Andrew in 1992, the neighborhood witnessed a huge cultural shift. Thousands of Miami Dade County residents moved north and settled in Pembroke Pines. From one day to the next, the area became the third fastest growing city in the nation, establishing itself as a retail center with a steady economic development. The Old Davie School Historical Museum includes a collection of photographs, artifacts, maps and vintage items that depict the history of the community. It also hosts an annual history festival on the last Sunday of February.
