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.
Plantation’s population jumped by about 16,500 people between 1965 and 1970, a year after Motorola opened a facility there. 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.
Considered the 28th-largest area in the state of Florida. Two of the most popular communities here are Jacaranda and The Enclave. Land for the Jacaranda community development was acquired by Gulfstream Land and Development Company in 1970, when the population of the city soared to 23,000, from 6,500 in 1965. The community is home to the Jacaranda Country Club which hosts golf tournaments and other events. The Enclave is a family-friendly community with more than 80 percent owner-occupied homes.
