-Taking its name from a fortification established
more than 160 years ago during the Second Seminole
War, Fort Lauderdale boasts a history stretching
back 5,000 years before the first white settlers
arrived in the eighteenth century. From beautiful
tales of the “mysterious” New River
that helped launch the community to more recent
stories of rum running and gambling, segregation
and integration, and boom and bust, the history
of this Florida city is told here through the
everyday lives of those who lived it.
