Bonnet House Museum & Gardens

Dating back to 1921, this historic two-story, 35.4 acres (14.16 hectare) waterfront house was once the winter home of artist Frederic Clay Bartlett and his wife Evelyn. The Bonnet House is serenely elegant and preserved amidst the urban expansion of Fort Lauderdale Beach, which is what makes the land so special. Mrs. Bartlett, who died in 1997, gave the estate to the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation in 1983 to keep the property unchanged. Several concerts and events are held here throughout the year, and the house is available for private events such as weddings. Named for a waterlily that once inhabited the property, the Bonnet House is open year-round for guided tours.

Old Dillard Museum

This cultural and educational museum was built in 1924 and originally served as the first school in Fort Lauderdale for African-Americans. The Old Dillard Museum has now been restored as a community historic landmark. Today, it contains African-related artifacts including art, jewelry and tribal masks. The museum also features a live storyteller, who shares his tales of Africa from inside a thatched hut. It not only preserves the African culture but also provides an insight to the visitors about the rich history and culture. The museum hosts varied activities throughout the year and that includes lectures, workshops and classes.
