Pembroke Pines is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. The city had a population of 154,019 at the 2010 census, making it the second most populous city in Broward County and the 11th most populous in Florida. Its official motto is "Join Us - Progress With Us."
Pembroke Pines was incorporated in 1960. The name "Pembroke Pines" was taken from its location along Pembroke Road and the many pine trees in the area. But the name "Pembroke" dates back much further, and may have originated with an early landowner from Britain known as the Earl of Pembroke.
The first inhabitants of the area were American Indians who first appeared about 4,000 years ago. Skeletal remains of animal hunters dating back about 10,000 years were found around Broward County, showing that perhaps human beings had lived in the area even earlier.
The town started as agricultural land occupied by dairy farms and grew after World War II as servicemen were retiring, including large eastern sections that were part of the Waldrep Dairy Farm. The first two tiny subdivisions were called Pembroke Pines. One of the first homes in the city belonged to Dr. and Mrs. Walter Smith Kipnis, built in 1956. Dr. Kipnis was also the first mayor. It was then known as the “Village of Pembroke Pines” and was incorporated into a town in 1959. Builders contested the incorporation, so a legal battle ensued concerning the boundaries of the new town. City services were added in the 1960s with the building of the first fire department building near North Perry Airport. However, University Drive was the western edge of habitable land for residents.
