History of Davie
Davie was established as a town in the Everglades, with the first school breaking ground in 1916 after the swamplands were drained. The school was designed by renowned architect August Geiger and still stands today as a museum. The city was named after the developer who built that first school, and ever since Davie has been a historic center of South Florida’s early days.
Today the city pays homage to its equestrian roots through a western themed downtown, apparent in the architecture and the horse hitching posts. It is the rural, small town atmosphere that has fostered a sense of community unlike any other, and that continues to draw new buyers each year.
