ABOUT THE POMPANO BEACH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

The history of the City of Pompano Beach is quite fascinating, as it played an important role in the development of South Florida. Located exactly mid-way between Palm Beach and Miami, the city was at one point the southernmost railroad station of the famous Florida East Coast Railway built by Henry Flagler. In fact, one of the railroad’s employees, Frank Sheene, gave the city its name when writing down the name of the fish he had for dinner one evening during his survey of the shoreline. The fish “Pompano” runs abundantly in the warm waters of the Atlantic off our sandy beaches.

Long before Flagler and his railroad came to town, southern Florida was home to the Tequesta Indians. They survived on the subtropical land by living in villages near the ocean, feasting on the abundant sea life. The arrival of the Europeans in the mid-Eighteenth century led to the destruction of the Tequesta way of life, and the noble Indians soon succumbed to disease and warfare.
