So you just moved to sunny South Florida? After you get settled into your apartment in Fort Lauderdale, get out and discover all the awesome things about your new home! Living so close to the ocean has a lot of perks, but there’s also a rich history to explore around Fort Lauderdale. Here are a few historical sites we love:
Stranahan House & Museum
Built by Frank and Ivy Stranahan in 1901, the Stranahan House is the oldest remaining structure in the Broward County area. Originally built as a trading post, the house has a rich history in the Fort Lauderdale community. Not only has it housed a series of restaurants over the years, but the Stranahan House has also served as a community hall and hotel. These days, you can visit the museum year-round, attend numerous events, and many couples even choose the Stranahan House as their wedding venue.
