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.

Built in 1901 when the Seminole Indians still roamed around, the builder was very friendly &and traded with them, and his wife taught their children.

If you like historical houses, don't miss this. It's not very big, but it's very well kept and interesting.

My wife and I attended a charitable fund raising event here around the Christmas holiday season. The decorations were absolutely outstanding. The view from the back of the house, of the fort Lauderdale waterways, were just beautiful. How we managed to not come here after moving to South Florida 23 years ago was our loss.
