General information and History on Pompano Beach Florida

On July 3, 1908, a new municipality was incorporated, the town of Pompano Beach. Pompano Beach was supposedly named by a surveyor (Frank Sheene) for the fish (the Florida pompano - Trachinotus carolinus) he had been served while working in the area. During these times the community had a population of about 250 residents.

Long before the European discovery of America, southern Florida was the home of the Tequesta Indians. They adapted their lifestyle to the area's subtropical environment, living in small villages near the water. They frequently moving to be close to the sea life and game that made up an important part of their daily diet. Our knowledge of the Tequesta is not extensive, but we do know they engaged in religious ceremonies, and buried their dead in earthen mounds. One such mound remains in Pompano Beach, South Florida, (Indian Mound Park - Hibiscus Avenue & NE 13th Street in Pompano Beach) near the beach.

With the coming of European settlements, the local indigenous population fell victim to diseases, warfare and forced labor. By the time Spain surrendered Florida to the British in 1763, few Tequesta remained, and many of those were transported to Cuba.

There had been scattered settlers in the area of the now Pompano Beach, from at least the mid-1880s, but the first documented permanent residents of the Pompano area were the George Butler and Frank Sheene and their family who arrived in 1896 as railway employees. It is said that Sheene gave the community its name ,Pompano, after jotting down on his survey of the area the name of the fish he had for dinner. As other people settled in the area, George Butler was appointed the community's first postmaster, and his wife, Mary the first teacher when a one-room schoolhouse opened in 1899.

The city of Pompano Beach has a total area of 22.15 square miles , 20.55 square miles of it is land and 1.55 square miles of it (7.22%) is water. Pompano Beach is in northeast Broward County along the Atlantic Ocean. It includes about three miles of beachfront that extends from the intersection of State Road A1A and Terra Mar Drive to the Hillsboro Inlet.

Pompano Beach Airpark is located within the city of Pompano Beach and is the home of the Goodyear Blimp Spirit of Innovation.

In 2004 John Rayson was elected as the first official mayor of Pompano.
