The Fort Lauderdale Historical Society
Has a New Name and Logo
After many months of discussion, research and customer feedback, the Marketing Committee and the Board of Trustees of the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, Inc. are excited to introduce their new logo to community friends and visitors. Designed by S.Mark Graphics and inspired by a vintage Fort Lauderdale postcard, the new image is energetic and summons nostalgia of the bright times throughout Fort Lauderdale’s past.
The Historical Society’s goal was to maintain its corporate name of Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, Inc., and continue to fulfill its mission to bring the history of Greater Fort Lauderdale to life and preserve it for the enrichment of present and future generations. But, the organization will now do business as the Fort Lauderdale History Center. It is important to showcase a “sense of place” that offers historic buildings and a museum, as well as archives and collections, which preserve the history of Greater Fort Lauderdale for present and future generations to enjoy. This branding effort was made possible through a $10,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Broward, and the History Center thanks them for their generous support. Visit the History Center Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday noon-5 p.m. For more information, please call 954-463-4431 ext. 16.
