The August Geiger-designed Davie School was the pioneer school in Everglades and remains as Broward County’s oldest school building.
The school stopped its operations in 1980 but the Davie School Foundation aims to protect and preserve the integrity of the school, which has become an integral part of the town’s history.
As part of its preservation efforts, the Town of Davie relocated two historic buildings next to the Old Davie School. Built in 1912, the Viele House is the oldest residential building in the town that represents a vernacular architecture. It is elevated in pillars allowing the breeze to blow underneath the structure.
It is also a few minutes from the Fort-Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
Davie has a number of activities offered to its local residents and visiting tourists. Bergeron Rodeo Grounds is a popular hangout place for families. This outdoor facility used to serve as a rodeo arena but has since evolved to accommodate various events and activities such as concerts, circus, horse shows, dog shows, car shows, monster truck, car shows and air boat shows.
About 10 minutes west of the neighborhood is the Flamingo Gardens – a wildlife sanctuary and botanical garden.
Davie is also home to the 55,000-square foot Young at Art Museum founded in 1987. It features exhibition galleries, art institute, teen center and a museum pre-school.
While Miami has the best restaurants that tourists crave for, Davie dining options offers a variety of dishes in a laidback atmosphere.
