Purpose:
Explore the rich heritage and influence of the Old Dillard community. Built in 1924, the Old Dillard School, originally called “The Colored School,” is not only the first school constructed for blacks in Broward County, but also is one of the oldest buildings in Fort Lauderdale. In February 1991, the Old Dillard School was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Renovations to the Old Dillard School were made possible through a cooperative effort between the School Board of Broward County, the City of Fort Lauderdale, the Broward County Commission, and the Black Historical Society. Their efforts preserved the school and created a cultural education center known as the Old Dillard Museum.
