about Historic Stranahan House Museum:
In 1906, it became the residence of Frank Stranahan, who was Fort Lauderdale's first postmaster.
After Stranahan's death during the depression, his wife lived upstairs and leased the rest of the house to outsiders for use as a restaurant. In 1973, the house was named to the National Registry of Historic Places. When the restaurant closed in 1979, the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society took possession.
The house was restored in 1981, and is furnished with examples of period pieces and furniture.
Tours are conducted on the hour, and last 45-60 minutes. Group tours of 12 or more can be booked in advance, any day of the week.
