  • With all the glitz, sun and glamour of Fort Lauderdale, it is easy to forget the town,s origins . Bringing yourself down to earth is the Stranahan House, nestled right in the midst of the hustle and b...  more »
  • It was such an enjoyable tour of the historic Stranahan House in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. This is certainly old Florida history at it's best. 
  • The visit is possible only as organized guided tour, it is run at 1,2 and 3pm daily. At the time we came there was no one else, so we received a private tour, which was great. Our guide was great, she...  more »

  • My partner of 26 years and I were married at Stranahan House on March 18,2016. We have been fond of this location most of our lives. It is beautiful and historic, charming and tasteful. The house was open for tours which the wedding guests loved. The staff at Stranahan House was extraordinarily accommodating. They made a special day effortless for us . I especially appreciated Lindsay Romagnoli's deft handling of the event . She is a lovely person and efficient in her work. Special thanks to April as well. If you consider having a special event at Stranahan, you will not be disappointed. The staff makes it a breeze. Thank you, Lindsay Romagnoli !!! Tom & Dennis
  • Went to the Christmas boat parade and we were herded around like cattle. Told to be there at 7:15 and were not allowed into the house until 8:00 PM, the time the boat was suppose to leave. While waiting, I asked twice if we would be able to take pictures and not be rushed. Said yes and both were lies. Before we entered the house and after we entered the house we were forced to listen to endless chatter about the Stranahan family and then were corralled from room to room to listen to the Stranahan family legacy. When I faded back to take pictures I was told to keep up with the group because there was another group behind us and we had to rush because the boat was past due from leaving. There was a nasty little girl who watched me like a hawk to keep me moving and was making snide remarks every time I stopped to take a picture. I took friends who were visiting from Sweden and was embarrassed by the lack of class and quality of this trip. It was all about money. You will not like the way you are treated. Do not go for 1/2 the price
  • Was a beautiful place to visit today!
  • Nice place to visit
  • If you are interested in the history of Fort Lauderdale, this is definitely a great place to visit. It is beautifully restored and showcases many original items. The tour guides are very friendly and knowledgeable. It also offers a great view of the river. Just off of Las Olas Blvd, so you can go to dinner and shop afterwards!
