Overview

The Historic Stranahan House Museum is the City's oldest surviving structure. The story of the Stranahan House is the story of a family, a house, and a city. 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. Open daily for guided House tours at 1, 2, and 3pm. Special events, weddings, and holiday programs.

Interesting museum telling the story of early Florida development. Docents were very knowledgeable. They restored this property and did a great job. Worth a visit.

We are history buffs so we love these small historic places. The guides are so much fun and children love to ring the bell outside.

$12 for adults. Well worth the price for the one hour tour. The historian shared lots of history.

I'm sorry, I did not go on the ghost tour. The guide we had said he ran those tours though and he really had a love of the Stranahan house.
