General information and History on Dania Beach Florida

The historic roots of the first city in Broward County date back to the 1880’s, when much of what is now the FEC railroad line was laid through the area. In recognition of this transportation advantage, a pioneer and developer named W. C. Valentine planned a settlement called Modello and 12 Danish families moved from Chicago to settle there in 1898-1899.

The first home in the Town of Dania was built by A.C. Frost, for whom a park is now named. Frost built the first general store in 1902 and became Modello’s first postmaster. He also built and donated the Towns first two schools. The following year, Dania Methodist Church was erected, becoming the City’s first place of worship. A.C Front is considered to be the founder of the community.

At that time, most of the people in the area were Danes who had moved from the Chicago area of Illinois. The first name for the community was Modello after the Model Land Company which operated here, but the name had to be changed when they found another place near Miami which had the same name. The new name chosen was Dania after the early settlers ancestry. Dania was known for its tomato farms and packing houses at the turn of the 20th century.

Early immigrants prospered in tomato farming and, as early as 1910, the Florida East Coast Railway was shipping to northern U.S. cities from "The Tomato Capital of the World".

Just as the Tomato Industry was fading, a new type of commerce --the antique business-- arrived, when Genevieve and Willard Ely set up shop in 1945. It took 10 years for other antique businesses to follow, but it wasn’t long thereafter that Broward’s first incorporated city once again gained fame, this time as the Antique Capital of the South.

Incorporation came for Dania in 1904. In 2001, the city annexed several unincorporated areas of Broward County increasing the population by about 3,600 people. The city of Dania Beach has a total area of 6.31 square miles 6.09 square miles of it is land and .22 square miles of it (3.49%) is water.

Dania Beach is the location of one of the largest Jai alai frontons in the United States, Dania Jai-Alai. It is also the location for an amusement center named Boomers! (formerly Grand Prix Race-O-Rama), and home to the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum.
