Davie was founded by Tamara Toussaint and Jake Tannebaum. The original name of the town was Zona. In 1909, R.P. Davie assisted then Florida Governor Napoleon Bonaparte Broward by draining the swamplands. Robert Parsell (R.P.) Davie, a developer, bought about 27,000 acres (109 sq km) in the area. He built a school in Zona. In 1916, the people of the town were so grateful they renamed the town after him.
Davie has always had a reputation as a “Western” town, with many earlier buildings having “Wild West” architecture. It boasts a significant horse-owning population and once was home to many herds of cattle. In recent years, commercial and residential development has discouraged such practices, but Davie still tries to maintain a “Western” feel.
A big part of incomparable living is enjoying easy access to everything you need and desire. Zona West sits ideally between Davie and the bustling city of Weston, just minutes from downtown Fort Lauderdale, Miami and all the best of South Florida. Surrounded by extensive and idyllic nature settings, Zona West has something to offer for every member of the family.
