History Fort Lauderdale

Welcome to History Fort Lauderdale

For more than five decades, History Fort Lauderdale has brought the stories of our diverse community to life through engaging educational experiences, innovative cultural exhibits, research and preservation of artifacts. We invite you to explore the significant and inspiring people, places and events that shaped our past and continue to influence the future of our vibrant city.

With education as the primary focus, we offer public lectures and workshops; publish teacher resource materials; arrange school and general group tours and activities; support scholarly research through significant research assistance; maintain a 1907 house museum and three other 1905 historic structures, and a museum of changing and permanent exhibitions, and operate a research center that has functioned uninterrupted for 51 years.
