Historic Stranahan House Museum
Built in 1901 by the “Father of Fort Lauderdale,” Stranahan House also referred to as the Pioneer House, is the oldest residence in the city. In 1984, this mansion was opened for public viewing as a house museum and almost 10,000 tourists visit this landmark annually. Now a historic riverside museum, the elegantly restored house contains antiques, turn-of-the-century furnishings and old photographs of the area. It is also an example of classic Florida Frontier architecture. The house has previously been used as a post office, town hall and general store. The events hosted here are as interesting as the collection and includes tours, the Pineapple Jam, the Peter Pan Pirate Party and more. This lovely museum can also be hired for private events and special celebrations.
We had an afternoon to spare, and how lucky we were to find this 1900's treasure just a few minutes from downtown. It's the original trading popst and home on one of the first settlers "Frank" and his wife, Ida. She was the first school teacher. Our guide told us about everything. Great fun!!!
Located in downtown Ft Lauderdale the Historic Stranahan House Museum is a must see. It was orginally a trading post owned and operated by Frank Stranahan. In 1906 it was turned into a home for Frank an his wife Ivy.
The tour is about 45 minutes and tells the
history of the city, the contributions the Stranahans made to the area,their relationship with the Seminole Indians, and their lives in the river settlement.
The Museum is open everyday, tours are offered at 1, 2, & 3 pm. $12 adults, $11 seniors, & $7 students and children.
Great history, definetly a good place to visit. Not expensive at all, very friendly guides. Located in the best place in Ft. Lauderdale. Go today, and help them fight for their cause. Developers are going to build a huge building that will wrap around it, they will loose the beauty of the house, and we are going to loose our history. It is already hard to see it as it is, imagine with a big building wraped around it. It's a shame...
