About Pembroke Pines

Pembroke Pines is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. The city had a population of 154,750 at the 2010 census, making it the second most populous city in Broward County, the tenth most populous in Florida, and the 150th most populous in the United States. Its official motto is 'Join Us - Progress with Us.' Pembroke Pines was incorporated in 1960, and took the name Pembroke from its location along Pembroke Road and the many pine trees in the area. But the name Pembroke dates back much further. The name may have been from an early landowner from Britain known as the Earl of Pembroke. The first inhabitants estimate in the city are American Indians that first appeared about 4,000 years ago. Skeletal remains of animal hunters dating about 10,000 years old were found around Broward County, showing that perhaps human beings have lived in the area even earlier.
