Stranahan House Historic Museum in Fort Lauderdale

Wordless Wednesday On Tuesday

Nestled amidst the high-rise buildings and the hustle bustle of contemporary Fort Lauderdale - not far from the touristy area of Las Olas- stands the oldest historical property in Fort lauderdale. The Stranahan House is the only property that has not been wiped out by hurricanes- find out why??

Click to read the entire history of Frank Stanahan and The Stranahan House which  was built in 1903 by Frank Stranahan who had come to the area in 1893 at the age of 27 to work for his cousin's ferry and camp. Soon Frank established a trading post with the Seminole Indians and established his property which initially served as a Trading Post and community hall . Later it became home for Ivy and Frank.
After Frank died , Ivy rented the downstairs to a restaurant and lived upstairs.

The tour of the house and the history was amazing! A wonderful treat to visit when in Fort Lauderdale, Florida!
