History Of Coral Springs
Coral Springs’ genesis began in 1911 when Henry “Bud” Lyons acquired over 20,000 acres of South Florida’s marshy wilderness and drained the area to develop farmland that specialized in the cultivation of beans, earning Lyon’s the nickname: Titan of the Beach Patch.
In 1947, after a series of hurricanes flooded the area, Florida established the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District (today’s South Florida Water Management District), which oversaw the construction of South Florida’s canal and levee network that further drained the land that would become present-day Coral Springs.
Following World War II, South Florida’s real estate boom witnessed significant investment. Coral Ridge Properties, a land development firm overseen by James Hunt, Joseph Taravella, and Stephen Calder, expanded westward into northwest Broward County. The firm purchased approximately 4,000 acres in 1961, allowing the land to become eligible for incorporation under Florida law. Two years later, the City of Coral Springs was chartered.
Hunt’s vision for a beautiful and natural community came to fruition throughout the 1960s, when over 1,000 lots were sold–Johnny Carson was among the buyers. And over the next few decades, Coral Springs’ population surged, spurring the development of schools, shopping centers, and other iconic landmarks that stand today.
