Fort Lauderdale Historical Society – Three Museum Tour

Believing that a sense of history is fundamental to understanding human experience, the Ft. Lauderdale Historical Society maintains a house museum and 3 other 1905 historic structures, as well as operating a research center.

Your guided tour through the museum, historic house and schoolhouse are led by enthusiastic docents well-versed in the history of Ft. Lauderdale. The small, Old Fort Lauderdale Village features faithfully preserved buildings located along the north side of the New River and seeks to share the knowledge of how the area dramatically changed in 100 years to the Yachting Capital of the World. Learn how it got its intricate network of canals and waterways, and what really took place here during the Seminole Wars.

Travel back in time as you visit the old Schoolhouse, the King-Cromartie House, the Museum of History at the New River Inn, and then stroll through the lush grounds featuring native flora and fauna along the river. The King-Cromartie House survives as one of the very earliest homes built by one of the first pioneers, Ed King, a building contractor. He came to the New River Settlement with his wife and young family, found just a smattering of people living here, and built a schoolhouse for the nine children. A visit to this foursquare, Georgian style house is a great introduction to the lifestyle of the early settlers.

The New River Inn on the property houses the Historical Museum housing original artifacts and documentation of the arrival of “modernity” to south Florida via railroads which brought more and more people, attracted to the lush vegetation and opportunities for growth. After visiting the Ft. Lauderdale Historical Society you’ll have a new understanding of and appreciation for just how this area came to be what it is today.

Hours: Monday–Friday, 12pm–4pm; Saturday & Sunday: 9:30am–4pm
