The Stranahan House is an important historic building in Fort Lauderdale, Florida which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

Built by Frank Stranahan in 1902 as a pioneer trading post, the building served as the town hall and post office in the early days of the town. The building was then remodeled in 1906 to house Stranahan?s wife, adding a 2nd floor and modifying major parts of the structure. After Ivy Julia Cromartie, Stranahan?s wife, died, the first floor was rented out to a restaurant serving the area travellers heading to the ferry at New River and through what is now US Route 1.

The site is open every day, except during September, with tours available at every hour from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.
