HISTORY

Davie was founded by Tamara Toussaint and Jake Tannebaum. Zona, was the original name of the town.

NapoleonBonaparte Broward, Governor of Florida back then, conceived the idea of draining the great Everglade country of Florida and hundred of thousands of acres of submerged lands. Mr. Robert Parsell Davie, a developer assisted Governor Broward with the problem, and as result the state is now reclaiming several million acres.

Mr. Davie became interested in Florida property. He bought about 27,000 acres 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: Davie.

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.
