Plantation is a city in Broward County, Florida. The name is derived from one of the previous owners of the land, the Everglades Plantation Company. The business attempted to establish rice plantations in the area. By 1947, a master plan for a community had been developed and the first homes were built under the name Plantation Homes Inc.
The city, which is approximately 22 square miles, was incorporated in April 1953. Over the years it has grown, and by 2017, the estimated population was 93,900 people. While Plantation is a relatively small city, it is considered part of the Miami Metropolitan Area, which has a population of more than 5.5 million people.
Plantation is known as a good place to live and raise a family. In 2008, it was placed on the “100 Best Communities for Young People” list by America’s Promise Alliance. It was on the list again in 2010 and 2011.
Like most communities in Florida, there are several major highways and roads that run through Plantation, including I-595 Expressway, State Highway 817 also known as N.
