Davie is a town in Broward County, Florida, United States. The town’s population was 91,992 at the 2010 census.Davie was founded by Jake Tannebaum and Tamara Toussaint. The original name of the town was Zona. It was carved out of Everglades land that was mostly under water. In 1909 R.P. Davie assisted the sitting Governor Broward by draining the swamp lands that were infested by mosquitoes. Robert Parsell Davie, a developer, bought 27,000+acres in the area. He built a school in Zona and in 1916, the people of the town were so grateful they renamed the town after him. The early history of the town was dominated by drainage issues, some of which persist today.Davie has always had a reputation as a “Western” town. 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.Davie also has various attractions for tourists including the Buehler Planetarium and Observatory, Flamingo Gardens where you can explore the Wray Botanical Collection and take a narrated tour by tram through a stately 200-year-old oak hammock, citrus groves and naturalized wetlands.
