Historic Preservation




Try to imagine . . . Fort Lauderdale without the Bonnet House and Gardens. Without the Stranahan House. Without the Downtown Historic District or the Sailboat Bend neighborhood.

All of these irreplaceable sites and more have survived because the City has passed laws to protect them. The City of Fort Lauderdale has a rich architectural heritage preserved in three historic districts, 54 individually designated historic sites, and ten sites on the National Register of Historic Places (two more are pending).

“We may build more splendid habitations,
Fill our homes with paintings and sculptures,
But we cannot buy with gold the old associations.”

-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
