Florida Recent History

Fleeing segregation and racial violence, more than forty thousand people (one in five black Florida residents) moved between 1910 and 1940 to the industrial cities of the Northeast and Midwest of the United States.

Back at the end of the 19th century, Florida, being one of the most sparsely populated states in the USA, but at the same time having a hot climate, hundreds of kilometers of ocean beaches and an extremely diverse flora and fauna, began to attract numerous vacationers.

A very important role in the development of the Florida economy was played by the construction of railroads, which provided the opportunity for quick and convenient travel from the Northeast of the United States to the peninsula, and the Florida railroad magnates paid great attention to the development of the state. So, for example, Henry Flagler, who built the railroad on the east coast of the peninsula, is considered the “father” of the city of Miami, which today has become one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States, and Henry Plant, who built railroads in the west of the state, did a lot for the development of the city of Tampa.

In 1888 US President Grover Cleveland visited Florida with his wife and accompanying persons.

In the twenties of the XX century, Florida experienced a period of extremely rapid growth in demand for land. Land speculation flourished in the state and many new construction projects were launched. The “land boom” of the mid-twenties gave way to the decline of the “Great Depression” and the “New Deal” of President Franklin Roosevelt. Thousands of the unemployed survived only thanks to employment in public works; in those years, many infrastructure facilities, roads, schools, military bases were built in Florida.

The 1930s also saw the opening of the first theme parks in Florida, laying the foundation for the future prosperity of the state.

During the Second World War, Florida, due to its favorable geographical position, became the largest center for the concentration of units of the US Army and Navy. Many of the naval and air bases established at that time still exist in Florida today.

In the post-war years, due to the low latitude, it was Florida that was chosen for the construction of the spaceport, which later grew into the famous Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral. It was from here that the first American satellite was launched into space in 1958, from here the first US astronaut Alan Shepard launched in 1961, from here in 1966 a rocket took off, delivering the first unmanned module to the surface of the Moon. Located around Cape Canaveral, the area known as the “Space Coast” is one of the largest centers of the aerospace industry in the United States.

In the fifties of the XX century, the rapid growth of the population of Florida began: if in 1950 the state ranked twentieth in the United States in terms of population, then already in the eighties it became the fourth and still holds this position. It is believed that the most important factor that has allowed such a sharp increase in the number of residents of the state is the widespread use of household air conditioners. Even then, Florida began to attract numerous retirees from the more northern regions of the United States, in particular from the Rust Belt. After the Cuban Revolution in 1959, thousands of emigrants from the “Isle of Freedom” flocked to Florida, thanks to which there are now more Cubans living in the state than anywhere else in the United States.

In 1971, the famous Disney Magic Kingdom amusement park opened near Orlando, which has become one of the main tourist attractions in the United States and the most visited park in the world.
