STRANAHAN HOUSE

Stranahan House was built as a trading post for settlers and the Seminole Indians in 1901. It has served as a post office, community center, and town hall. It was built by Frank Stranahan and became his residence in 1906. After his death, his wife Ivy continued to live there until her death in 1971. The house has been restored and named to the National Register of Historic Places.  It is a popular place for weddings and various fund raisers in the city.
