About The Historic Stranahan House Museum
Built in 1901, The Stranahan House is the oldest and most historically significant surviving structure in Broward County, Florida. Built by founding father of Fort Lauderdale, Frank Stranahan, the structure served as the pioneer wilderness' trading post, post office, bank and gathering place. After marrying the area's first school teacher, Ivy Cromartie Stranahan, the building became their home, later a boarding house, restaurant and now finally, a museum. Sitting on its original location in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale, The Historic Stranahan House Museum remains a connection to the past while operating as an educational center, cultural destination and community event space. The museum is open 7 days a week for tours and is located at 335 Southeast 6th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. For more information, visit: www.stranahanhouse.org. Or call: (954) 524-4736.
