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 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.
