1080 NW 47th Avenue, Lauderhill, FL 33313
The Cultural Museum, a brand new 3,000 square foot building set in the footprint of the very first Lauderhill City Hall, is located in the beautiful Walter M. “Wally” Elfers Park. This facility houses historic items such as old photographs, artifacts, and various items of significance of Lauderhill’s rich history.
The building has a large multipurpose room that can be divided into three smaller rooms which can be utilized for many purposes such as homeowner’s or business meetings, and the popular current activity of the City’s Chess Club. Artifacts are displayed in the center of the building, allowing people the ease to walk and view all items.
The Museum was built to LEED* standards that include: water fixtures, energy saving lights and air conditioning unit, and recyclable materials for paint and carpet. The Park includes lush landscaping and brick pavers, and it meets the “Old Florida Tropical” design standard. Much of the plants and trees around the facility require little to no irrigation. This facility bridges Lauderhill’s rich past with its promising future and will certainly provide the community with a place of pride and pleasure.
*LEED, Leadership in Energy & Environment Design. LEED buildings save money and resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants, while promoting renewable, clean energy.
The Museum is under the Direction of the Parks and Leisure Services Department.
