The New River Inn
The New River Inn is located in the old Fort Lauderdale village and museum district. It is Broward's oldest remaining hotel structure and the first building to be registered in the National Registry of Historic Places. At the time the hotel offered twenty-four guest rooms, dining room, running water, sewer and irrigation systems, and light was provided with carbide lamps. It was built in 1905 for Philemon N. Bryan who built the railway section from the New River to Pompano for Henry Flagler. In 1894, Philemon, his two sons Tom and Reed, and 400 African-American workers started to build the railroad. The first train to reach Fort Lauderdale was on February 22, 1896. Afterward, Bryan and his sons purchased land on each side of the railroad tracks, an area which would later become downtown Fort Lauderdale. The contractor, Edwin T. King, built the New River Inn as well as the Philemon Bryan House, and the Tom and Reed Bryan Houses creating in the process the first residential area. Today, the New River Inn houses the Old Fort Lauderdale Museum of History. http://www.flheritage.com/preservation/markers/markers.cfm?ID=broward http://www.oldfortlauderdale.org
