  • The Stranahan House    The Stranahan House Fort Lauderdale
    Is located in downtown Fort Lauderdale on the historic New River.  The Stranahan House played a big part of discovering the City and contributing to its economy and social development.  Frank Stranahan chose this site because it was where he operated his barge ferry across the river as part of the new road from Lantana to what is now known as North Miami.  The Stranahan House was used as a trading post for settlers & Seminole Indians during 1901.  Later the house evolved into a Post Office, Community Center and the Town Hall and Frank Stranahan became Fort Lauderdale's first Postmaster, Banker and Businessman.  Frank married Ivy Julia Cromartie the area's first School Teacher, shortly after their marriage community dances and festivals were held on the upper floor of the house.  In 1906, the house became the permanent residence of Frank & Ivy Stranahan until Ivy's death  followed by Frank's suicide during the depression.  The Stranahan House in 1973 was named to the National Register of Historic Places.  The Stranahan House has undergone expansion & renovations numerous times.  The  house is presently restored to it's 1913-1915 configuration during that time Frank Stranahan had has electric wiring, indoor plumbing, running water, bay windows, interior stairways and wide porches.  The exterior was repainted to match the original colors of white with green trim along with a new roof.  Many of the original interior furnishings were either sold or given away through the years.  Today the Stranahan House is furnished with examples of Victorian furniture and decorative pieces.   Visitors can tour the Stranahan House daily in fact, when you are touring this historic house it's like walking into a time machine.  The house is historically accurate & detailed from a antique washing machine to the ornate phonograph.  When visitors experience the Stranahan House it gives you a precise look into Florida's history.
