It then became a town in 1955, when land development became prominent due to an influx of people moving to Margate. Soon after, in 1961, it was officially incorporated as a city. The name of the city itself is a portmanteau of the first three letters of the founder's last name, John Marqusee, and the first four letters of gateway, since it was considered a "gateway" to western Broward County.
