Sailboat Bend was the site of the original military Fort Lauderdale (yes, there actually was one built during the 1800's). In the same area, there is evidence dating to 1450 B.C. of the Tequesta Indian settlements-and you thought we were a modern day phenomenon. Today, the neighborhood is comprised of many ethnic backgrounds and is flourishing. If you would like to know more about Sailboat Bend, you may do so here.

Most cities start out as small towns that overtime grow to what they are today. We are no exception. The original settlement expands and becomes two distinct areas. They grow and each becomes distinct and we then call them neighborhoods.
