Named for the Everglades Plantation Company, original owner of the land in the area, Plantation emerged in the first half of the 20th century. Frederick C. Peters acquired 10,000 acres of land from the Everglades Plantation Company in 1941 and the first homes in the area were built by Chauncey Park in 1947. The number of residents increased more than fivefold between 1948 and 1950. The city was incorporated in 1953, with the population put at 475 people at the time.

The number of residents has gone on to continue growing in leaps and bounds and was estimated at 92,560 in 2015. The city boasts a high number of well-educated residents, with the percentage of adults with a Bachelor’s degree about twice the national average. Notable residents include Luis Castillo, Cody Ross, Bob Norman, Chad Johnson and rapper Fat Joe.
