Date in History:
The City of Hollywood was incorporated on this date. Located in southern Broward County, Hollywood was designed by land developer Joseph Young, who first traveled to south Florida looking for a location to build his dream city. Development along the coast expanded tremendously until 1926 when a hurricane destroyed many of the buildings in the city. It was not until after WWII that the population again began to swell and grew steadily, now making Hollywood the second largest city in Broward County. Hollywood is also home to one of six Seminole Indian reservations.
