About Historic Stranahan House and Museum

The Stranahan House was built in 1901and remains the oldest and most historically significant structure in Broward County. Credited as being the region’s first permanent white settler and businessman, Frank Stranahan operated a trading post to do business with a handful of travelers the area’s original residents, the Seminole Indians. Over the years as Fort Lauderdale grew and developed, the house became a post office, boarding house, restaurant and home to the “Founding Father” and “First Lady” of Fort Lauderdale – Frank and Ivy Stranahan. Today it stands on its original location in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale and is the epicenter of Broward County’s long and fascinating history. For more information, visit
