A guided tour of Fort Lauderdale’s historic Stranahan House is like a journey through time… a link to a time when Seminole Indians made friends with a young Ohioan who settled in the frontier town now known as Fort Lauderdale.

Imagine young Frank Stranahan winning the hand of Miss Ivy Cromartie, the town’s first teacher, and building her a home so charming and enduring it survives today as a unique museum. The Stranahan House, with its Florida vernacular style, has served as a trading post, town hall, post office and bank. Restored to its 1913 configuration, it’s a “must see” in South Florida.
