A Brief History of Tamarac, FL

The city of Tamarac hasn’t been a separate entity for very long. It began as an adult community of two-bedroom maintenance-free homes in the early 1960s when Ken Behring came to Florida from the Midwest and bought the land for it. He picked the name Tamarac for the city, inspired by the nearby country club in Oakland Park.

Over the several years, Tamarac’s boundaries fluctuated as portions of the city were sold and other areas were added. This was motivated by the city’s early leaders, who hoped to preserve Tamarac as a bedroom community, so they sold off many of the commercial areas. Today, the city has a population of nearly 72,000 people (around 32,800 households) living within just over 12 square miles.
