 Dade County, Florida
While the modern history of Dade County begins with the arrival of the first permanent white settlers, in the early part of the 19th century, the remoteness of the area limited its development to a handful of farms and plantations, plus a few small settlements, until the arrival of the railroad in 1896.
The original Dade County settlements were all built near the Biscayne Bay, but the great influx of new residents, in the early 1900s, made it necessary to build canals to drain the uninhabitable land of the Everglades.
In 1991, the population of Dade County was nearly two million.
