Annie Beck House
SAVING & MOVING
In 1977, Mrs. Beck`s home of 61 years at 334 E. Las Olas Blvd. was moved to 310 SE 11th Ave and in 2008 the house was moved to Middle River Terrace Park. It is now The Annie Beck Educational Center, home of The Broward Trust for Historic Preservation
2018 PROCLAMATION - Steven Glassman - our New Commissioner leading the charge
On January 31st we gathered to say farewell to Merrilyn Rathbun, research director, historian, preservationist, and believer in historical designations. Merrilyn worked on historic designation applications for many of the preserved properties in Broward County. She shared her expertise with hundreds of authors, teachers, and property owners through the years. Moreover, she ensured that Florence Hardy's newspaper files were updated each day. Greatly missed Merrilyn was a Fort Lauderdale treasure and we already feel the loss of her expertise. We thank those who joined us to celebrate her life.
Donations in lieu of flowers should go to the Broward Trust for Historic Preservation.
As we grow in numbers, so does our ability to complete more historic designations and preserve more of our County’s built history. To join our cause or renew your membership, we suggest you visit www.browardtrust.org. Our annual membership dues are $35 for a single or $50 for a household membership. Thank you to those who already joined or renewed their memberships for 2019; if you have not, then please do so today!
