Lauderhill’s City Commission and Historical Board Members will Host a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Opening of the City’s Historical Museum

The City of Lauderhill, now 54 years old, was incorporated in 1959.  Lauderhill’s rich history is a source of pride for both former and current residents.

On, Thursday, December 5th, 2013 at 4:00 PM, a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place to open the new Historical Museum located in Wally Elfers Park, and YOU ARE INVITED!!!

The Mayor and Commissioners appointed several leaders from the community to help gather artifacts and information to adorn the walls and display cases at the Historical Museum. The Museum is located in the exact location of the very first City Hall for the City of Lauderhill. The contents displayed in the Museum were donated by members of the public. The story boards are collections of newspaper articles along with Lauderhill’s legislative history that tell the fascinating stories of how Lauderhill became the All America City that it is today.

“Members of the Historical Commission are hoping to continuously collect artifacts from the public after The Museum opens its doors,” says Tom Harney, Chair of the Committee.  They expect to continue to add to the displays as well as rotate them when additional donations are made. Future phases of the museum include audio and video displays as well.

The Historical Museum will have meeting and recreation rooms that the Parks and Leisure Services Department will schedule.

If you plan on attending the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the opening of the Lauderhill Historical Museum, please call Katia at 954-730-3000 or email her at no later than December 2, 2013.

Wally Elfers Park is located at 1080 NW 47th Avenue, in the City of Lauderhill.
