City of Pompano Beach

Pompano Beach isn’t only for beach lovers and outdoor enthusiasts; it also offers several attractions and museums that are of interest to history buffs.  Here are some of the sites located inside the city limits that should be top on your list. 

Built in 1916 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Sample-McDougald House reflects what life was like during the pioneer days of South Florida. 

Another must-see for history buffs is the Ely Educational Museum (Blanche & Joseph Ely House), which features a vast collection of items and artifacts relating to the black community in Pompano. 

If your interest lies further into the past, visit the Indian Mound Park , a prehistoric burial mound with views of the Intracoastal Waterway. 

To find out what life was like in South Florida during the 1940s, visit the Kester Cottages , two restored cottages that are owned and operated by the Pompano Beach Historical Society.  One of the cottages houses a collection of artifacts that tell the story of old Pompano Beach.

The city’s first fire station, Old Pompano Fire Station, features a collection of photographs and artifacts that tell the story of fire fighting dating from the 1920s.

Located outside of Pompano is the early 20th-century  Stranahan House , a dignified Victorian-style mansion that has been lovingly restored to its original 1913 style and design.  

Butterfly World is also close to Pompano Beach.  You can get there by bus (go to Tradewinds Park) or car. Lots to see from the beautiful flowers everywhere, a swinging kind of bridge, butterflies, macaws, parrots and lorakeets.  You can feed the lorakeets nectar by hand for $1 per cup. They fly and land on you, then will eat right out of your hands. Kids can buy a butterfly pupa and watched it hatch a few days after getting home from vacation.
