The Historic Stranahan House Museum showcases the home 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.
THE HISTORIC STRANAHAN HOUSE MUSEUM is open every day for tours at 1, 2, and 3 pm. Tours last about 45-60 minutes.
The House is closed on New Year's Day, Easter, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day. We sometimes limit tour schedules due to weddings and special events. Please call 954-524-4736 for specific dates.
