When the first houses were developed in Lauderhill, very few people wanted to live in the “Dairy Farm country.” In the early years, there were actually far more cows than people within the borders of the City. Only until only recently, traces of the MCArthur Dairy Farm were still evident. Thousands of acres in early Lauderhill were lands full of grazing cows that produced fresh milk for the widely known dairy.
The area still referred to as Inverrary, the neighborhood was designed as a planned urban development. This innovative housing plan was designed to arrange the land and housing developments before the building began. Each section was carefully designed for a specific purpose. Inverrary later became the home of the Inverrary Country Club and site of the Jackie Gleason Inverrary Golf Classic.
