Happy Belated Birthday to Frank Lloyd Wright on the 150th anniversary of his birth, June 8, 2017.

Wright is arguably the most significant American architect with many masterpieces still standing.  Did you know that Florida Southern College in Lakeland is the world’s only Wright-designed college and the largest single-site collection of his works?


 
 

On Sunday, December 3, nearly five hundred attendees had the opportunity to share in the joy of historic preservation during the 2017 Historic Homes Holiday Tour! Generous private homeowners, the Broward Trust for Historic Preservation, and the City of Fort Lauderdale magnanimously opened the doors to their properties for the public to marvel and delight in what awaited them. The results; another successful tour enjoyed by all.
New too this year our pre-tour event, “An Evening at the Firehouse” honoring our homeowners and volunteers at the beautiful Fort Lauderdale Fire House and Safety Museum designed by renowned architect Francis Abreu.
Thank you for attending and thank you for supporting our mission; it is enormously appreciated. It is vital that we leave a legacy of our built history; future generations of residents and visitors deserve to enjoy the character and charm of these architectural resources. So many are disappearing so fast, and that trend needs to stop. Thank you to the homeowners, our sponsors, our volunteers, the Sun Sentinel, Hello Sunny and the City of Fort Lauderdale staff who went above and beyond in ensuring a successful day! 
For those of you who would like to join our cause or renew your membership, we suggest you visit www.browardtrusts.org. Alternatively, check us out on Facebook. Perhaps you or someone you know might also be interested in assisting us in making a generous contribution towards the maintenance of the Annie Beck House owned by the Trust and always in need of tender loving care. The Trust needs your donations to support historical designations too.
We love our volunteers if you would like to volunteer to be part of the home tour team 2018 go to www.historicholidayhometour.org and fill out the volunteer form.
Again, thank you, and we hope to see you next year; planning is already underway to bring you even more historical beauties! Check the tour website for future updates and Trust events.
 
We hope you had a very Happy Hanukkah, a very merry Christmas and best regards for a very happy, healthy, and joyous New Year!
