Fort Lauderdale History Center, previously the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, was founded in 1962 to collect, preserve and interpret the history of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County. In 2005 the Historical Society completed the historic village which features the largest remaining collection of early-20th century buildings in Broward County. Located where the city began, the History Center is situated where Flagler’s East Coast Railway crosses the New River, and is just steps away from the Riverwalk. Old Fort Lauderdale Village offers many programs and activities. These include: teaching children about pioneer life through hands-on reenactments, a museum, schoolhouse class programs, guided tours of exhibits in the museum of history, guided walking tours of the historic district and special events and lectures throughout the year.
