The Museum in Fort Lauderdale

The museum at the Old Fort Lauderdale Village managed by the historical society was originally built in 1905 as the New River Inn. Visitors can choose a tour with a guide when one is available or take a self-guided tour. It is really not a problem because many of the exhibits feature interactive recordings that provide a background for the items in that part of the room. One of the things I learned through the film was that the original fort was built by 200 Tennessee Volunteers who had come to the area in the Seminole Wars in 1838.
