Florida City

Miami-Dade County

Year Founded: 1914


The city was developed in 1905 by Miami realtors. A group of settlers from Detroit, Michigan, agreed to name the place after their home city, but the Post Office Department said this would be confusing. The name Florida City was then adopted by a vote of the residents.
