Historic Stranahan House Museum

The Historic Stranahan House Museum tells the story of the birth of a community through the lives of two extraordinary people and the homestead they created, serving as an enduring legacy for historic preservation. The Stranahan House was built in 1901 by Frank Stranahan, credited as Fort Lauderdale’s founding father, and his wife Ivy Cromartie Stranahan, the area’s first school teacher. It is the oldest surviving structure in Broward County and has been a trading post, post office, town hall, and home to the Stranahans. The house was opened to the public as a historic house museum in 1984. A guided tour of the Historic Stranahan House Museum is like a journey through time.
