Homes here have generally been built in the last 30 years or so. In fact, it has history but as recently as 1950 Plantation was little more than a backwater town with a population little more than 200. Even in the sixties this town was a very small town with the population kept well under 7,000.

The communications and electronics giant Motorola opened up a factory here in 1969 and the town grew as a result. In reality, it was in the seventies when the boom took place in the town and it steadily grew into the multi-cultural, thriving, economic city it is today.
