The Fort Lauderdale Historical Society Provides The Fort Lauderdale History Center

The mission of the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society is to bring the history of greater Fort Lauderdale to life through education, research and preservation for the enrichment of present and future generations.

We are an organization formed of many parts. Most of our buildings were built in early 1900s as school houses, inns, and homes, but are now used to explore the history of what we call “Old Fort Lauderdale.” Because a sense of history is fundamental to understanding human experience, we collect, preserve and share material from our community’s past so that present and future generations can comprehend more fully their predecessors, their community and themselves.

We offer public lectures and workshops; arrange school and general group tours; operate a research center; maintain a 1907 house museum, three other 1905 historic structures and a museum of changing and permanent exhibitions.
