Built as a trading post in 1901 and converted to a home in 1906, the Stranahan House on New River is the oldest building in Broward County and on the National Register of Historic Places. Ivy Stranahan lived there for decades after her husband committed suicide in the late 1920s. If you happen to remember mid-century Fort Lauderdale - when Ivy was still around - you may have dined in the old Stranahan House restaurant. The Historical Society of Fort Lauderdale has opened the home to the public with guided tours at 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm daily.
