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 2018; if you have not, then please do so today!


And then there is our beloved Annie Beck House. This 102 year-old house is always in need of tender loving care and repairs are on-going. This past year saw us replace the stairs, back porch, doors, and so much more. And, yet, the work continues. Your memberships and other generous donations go towards the maintenance of this historic landmark. The Trust needs your contributions to support all of our endeavors.

Last, but not least, we are always searching for volunteers. If you would like to volunteer to be part of the 2018 home tour team go to www.historicholidayhometour.org and fill out the volunteer form or call Michaela at 954-536-4297. If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors, then let us know that as well.

Thank you, and we hope to see you on December 2nd for this year’s tour; planning is already underway to bring you even more historical beauties!  Check the tour website, our Facebook page and the Trust website for future updates and events. We have also attached a brochure for additional information.

As always with gratitude,


Steven Glassman, President
