Stranahan House

The Stranahan House was built in 1901 as a trading post for settlers and Seminole Indians. The building's purpose evolved to a post office, bank, town hall, dance hall, restaurant and residence for Frank and Ivy Stranahan. Today, the historic structure acts as a bridge between Fort Lauderdale's historic and cultural districts.
