History

Pembroke Pines was incorporated in 1960, and took the name Pembroke from its location along Pembroke Road and the many pine trees in the area. But the name Pembroke may date back much further. The name may have been from an early landowner from Britain known as the Earl of Pembroke. The Earldom of Pembroke, associated with Pembroke Castle in Wales, was created by King Stephen of England. ...


The first inhabitants in the city are known as “Archaic” and were small bands of Indians that first appeared about 4,000 years ago. Skeletal remains of animal hunters dating about 10,000 years old were found around Broward County, showing that perhaps human beings have lived here even earlier. These people inhabited the county about 2,000 to 4,000 years ago. These Archaic Indians ate fish, shellfish, deer, bear, and plants such as sea grape and prickly pear. Broward County is a county located in the U.S. state of Florida. ...


The town started as agricultural land occupied by dairy farms and grew after the war as servicemen were retiring, including large eastern sections that were part of the Waldrep Dairy Farm. The first two tiny subdivisions were called Pembroke Pines. One of the first homes in the city belonged to Dr. and Mrs. Walter Smith Kipnis, built in 1956. Dr. Kipnis was also the first mayor. It was then known as the “Village of Pembroke Pines” and was incorporated into a town in 1959. Builders contested the incorporation, so a legal battle was brought out concerning the boundaries of the new town that were incorrectly stated in the ballot. City services were added in the 1960s with the building of the first fire department building near North Perry Airport. However, University Drive was the western edge of habitable land for residents. Waldrep Dairy Farm, 1928, near present day Taft & University Drive The Waldrep Dairy Farm, established in 1928, was the last functional dairy farm in Broward County and Miami-Dade County within the state of Florida until its closure in 2003. ... North Perry Airport (IATA: HWO, ICAO: KHWO) is a general aviation airport devoted exclusively to private and business light-plane activity. ...


In January 1960, Pembroke Pines held another election when 98% of 425 voters voted “yes” in Ernon Day’s driveway, thus the town became a city. This small property was less than a square mile and was between Hollywood Boulevard and SW 72nd Avenue, and had the Florida Turnpike to the east. Pembroke Pines sought to give citizens involvement so they organized the Pembroke Pines Civic Association. The square-mile city was unable to expand due to North Perry Airport and the South Florida State Hospital. Joseph LaCroix, a developer, had his 320 acres land north of Pines Boulevard annexed to the city. This gave a new pathway to proceed westward. In 1977, a maximum security prison known as the Broward Correctional Institution was built in northwestern Pembroke Pines. It was originally designated to house male inmates but woman only resided in the prison. The prison offers the accommodations for woman committing serious crimes including the housing of those on death row. It has a capacity for 611 inmates and has academic programs, vocational programs, wellness education services, library services, substance abuse programs, chaplaincy services, institutional betterment programs, and many other programs. In 1980, property from Flamingo Road to U.S. 27 was incorporated into Pembroke Pines, doubling the size of the city. This expansion included the property that is currently C.B. Smith Park as well as the Hollywood Sportatorium and the Miami-Hollywood Motorsports Park. The current logo for Floridas Turnpike Enterprise. ...

The city’s expansion was a major effect of Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Thousands of southern Miami-Dade County residents moved northward to Broward County, many to Pembroke Pines. The population greatly increased as former owners of destroyed homes spent their insurance money on an inland city. The resulting boom ranked the City of Pembroke Pines third in a list of Fastest Growing Cities in the United States in 1999.[2] Over the years, the sudden and unplanned overpopulation has caused problems, especially in schools. In 2003, Charles W. Flanagan High School had close to 6,000 students, making it the most populated high school in Florida. In response to Broward County's inability to keep up with demands, Mayor Alex Fekete and City Manager Charles Dodge started a Charter School System. As of 2006, Pembroke Pines had the largest Charter School System in the county. The city is also home to a campuses for Broward Community College and Florida International University.

Pembroke Pines was also home to the most dangerous road intersection (Pines Boulevard and Flamingo Road) in the United States in 2001, according to State Farm Insurance.[3] In 2005 a vote was passed by city residences on a bond initiative to allow the city to begin construction to redesign the area.
