  • The home & garden area’s were quite special, but the real treat was hearing the story of the Stanahan’s. They were truly ahead of their time. Our Guide Shelley was very knowledgeable & pleasant to listen too. If you have trouble climbing stairs or standing for an extended time you may want to skip this experience. Otherwise it was an enjoyable tour & history lesson!
  • The house is spectacular IF you're interested in history. Ask the director what you'd like to know about the history of Fort Lauderdale and you will be rewarded with a nice plethora of information.
