Colee Hammock 11

Colee Hammock

Most people think of a hammock as a cloth bed strung between two trees – which it is, from the Spanish hamaca, in turn from the West Indian Taino. But lesser known is a hammock defined as a stand of hardwood trees higher than its surroundings. This latter hammock, a variant of hummock, is what Colee Hammock is, as well as being the site of the Colee Massacre of 1842, when an early Florida settlement was attacked by Seminole Indians. After experiencing an economic downturn in the 1970’s, today Colee Hammock is one of the most vibrant communities in Broward County, with a mix of modern developments, Spanish-inspired estates, townhomes, and colorful Key West-style wood-frame cottages.
