It received its name when the Florida East Coast Railway built a siding in 1903, operated by an employee of the railroad named Goulds. It was first known as Gould's Siding, and later shortened to Goulds. Many packing houses were built along Old Dixie Highway. Early on, Goulds had a reputation as a rough town, with several saloons serving itinerant field workers. Most of the packing houses were destroyed by a tornado in 1919, as well as a Hurricane later in 1926, but were later rebuilt.
