In many parts of the country a one-hundred-year-old house would attract little attention, but in South Florida, a century takes us back to the beginning of our communities’ modern history. Unfortunately, we’ve lost too many of the pioneer structures as our agricultural lands have disappeared, to be replaced by an ever-expanding urban landscape. One hundred years after its construction, the preserved Sample-McDougald House is an important part of Pompano Beach’s social, cultural and civic life.  It connects current residents and visitors with our region’s fascinating heritage.
