Stranahan House is the oldest building in Broward County, Florida. The Stranahan House was built in 1901 by Frank Stranahan, Fort Lauderdale’s founding father, and his wife Ivy Cromartie Stranahan, the area’s first school teacher. The house has served as a trading post, post office, community center, town hall and home to the Stranahans. The Stranahan House has stood at the center of Fort Lauderdales growth since it was built and played a significant role in the economic and social life of this community.
The mission of the Historic Stranahan House Museum is to tell the story of the birth of our community through the lives of two extraordinary people and the homestead they created, and to serve as an enduring legacy for historic preservation.
There will be an information booth and a photo center where guests will be able to take pictures and share them via social media to show that they participated in Museum Day Live.
Guided House Tours are provided at 10 AM, 11 AM, 12 PM, 1 PM, 2 PM, and 3 PM. Guests can only visit the House with a guided tour. Advance registration is not required.
