Miramar is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 122,041. It is part of the South Florida metropolitan area, which was home to 5,564,635 people at the 2010 census.HistoryMiramar was founded by A.L. Mailman to serve as a “bedroom community" for nearby Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Mr. Mailman bought the original property he was to develop from H.D. Perry, Sr. in 1953. He built 56 homes on the property that were inexpensive homes of concrete and flat roofs. These homes sold quickly because of the low cost of both the homes and the land, and the city of Miramar came into being.The City of Miramar was incorporated on May 26, 1955. At the time of incorporation, the city had a population of less than two hundred people. With approximately 2.9 square miles land area, Miramar's original city boundaries were Southwest 64 Avenue on the east, University Drive on the west, the Dade County line on the south, and Pembroke Road on the north. On June 20th, 1955, the city's first mayor and city council were sworn in, all of which were appointed by the governor and served until January 1959 at which time the first municipal election was held. Robert Gordon, the first mayor of the city gave Miramar its name which translates to “Look at the Sea” in Spanish. "Miramar" was an exclusive suburb of Havana in pre-Castro Cuba. The city seal is inscribed with the motto “Beauty and Progress".Mr. H.D. Perry Sr.’s part in Miramar did not cease with selling of the land to Mr. Mailman for development. He is recognized as one of the foremost pioneers in the history of Miramar. His character and civic-activities influenced not only the lives of early residents, but continues to the present-day, as evidenced by the schools and parks in the city which bear his family’s name. Many long-time residents fondly recall the community barbecues hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Perry during those early years. Others are grateful to Mr. Perry for the lessons in animal husbandry, which he conducted for the benefit of Miramar’s youth so that they could learn something of farm life.
