Museum Building
Circa 1922



One of three remaining historical buildings on Brickell Avenue, the first commercial street in the City of Fort Lauderdale, constructed between 1924 and 1926, the building was used primarily as a furniture store (as Pace Furniture then Rhodes Furniture) and later occupied by the Broward Plasma Corporation until 1984 when the Broward School Board purchased the property for use as the County Archeological Museum.
