Encyclopedia Article for Hallandale

city, Broward county, southeastern Florida, U.S. It lies along the Atlantic Ocean, about 15 miles (25 km) north of Miami and just south of Hollywood. Settled by Swedish farmers in the late 1890s, it was laid out in 1898 and named for Luther Halland, a trading-post operator. The community was badly damaged by a devastating hurricane in 1926, which, along with the collapse of the Florida real estate boom, inhibited growth for a time. It subsequently developed as a tourist and retirement centre. The city changed its name from Hallandale to Hallandale Beach in 1999. Gulfstream Park (opened in 1939), with its garden of champions (displaying plaques honouring great Thoroughbred horses), is the home of the annual Florida Derby (March); the city also has a greyhound-racing track. Inc. town, 1927; city, 1947. Pop. (1990) 30,996; (2000) 34,282.
