Tropical Dreams : A Peoplefs History of South Florida

Explore South Florida history through five periods:

 The history of South Florida is the story of humans in a unique environment. It began more than 10,000 years ago with the arrival of prehistoric Indians and continues to the multi-cultural metropolis of today. Throughout the ages, the story has been characterized by arrivals-the immigration of people from many different places and cultures into the region. These varied peoples brought their dreams with them, and remade South Florida over and over again to fulfill those dreams. They also adapted to the region's subtropical environment, interacted with other cultures in South Florida, and, in the process, changed into something new and unusual. This is their story.
