Overview

Introduction to Lauderhill, Florida

The Florida city of Lauderhill is located in Broward County, about 7 miles northwest of Fort Lauderdale and 35 miles north of Miami. Bordered by Tamarac to the northeast, Plantation to the south, and Sunrise to the southwest, Lauderhill is easily accessible to the Florida Turnpike, Interstates I-75, I-95 and I-595 and the Sawgrass Expressway.

Incorporated in 1959, Lauderhill originally consisted of several acres of developable land in an area primarily used for dairy farming. Largely due to the efforts of builder/developer Herbert Sadkin, the city gradually developed from beautiful grazing pastures to a single-family home community. The city developed commercially as well, highlighted by the 1966 opening of the Lauderhill Mall, the first enclosed air-conditioned mall to open in the southeastern United States. Lauderhill's growth was further aided by the promotional activities of the Inverrary Country Club and the Jackie Gleason Inverrary Golf Classic. Lauderhill today has evolved into a vibrant city with an abundance of single and multi-family residences and a diverse business base, ranging from service organizations to light industry.

More major league pro sports can be found a little more than a half-hour drive southward, where the city of Miami plays host to the Miami Dolphins (NFL football), Miami Heat (NBA basketball), and the Florida Marlins (Major League Baseball).
