Fort Lauderdale , Florida

view web site ›'s insider take:

This Florida pioneer-style mansion was the home of Frank Stranahan, known as the Father of Fort Lauderdale, and his proto-feminist, yoga-crazy wife Ivy; they set up a trading post and bank here in the town's early days. Its interior has been lovingly restored and filled with period-specific ephemera—though it's the friendly, enthusiastic docents who really make a guided visit worthwhile. The exterior has also been carefully preserved, including the wide wraparound porch so typical of early Florida settlements; the forward-thinking Stranahan included an area outside where the Native Americans with whom he traded could pitch tents and bunk down for the night.

Closed Monday and Tuesday.
