Young Mansion and Gardens
Feel like you have been transported to an Andalusian villa in the south of Spain. Built in 1925 as the personal residence of the founder of Hollywood by the Sea, Josheph W. Young. This 23 room Spanish Moorish architectural gem was designed by the prominent Indianapolis architects, Rubush and Hunter, with help from Young’s personal friend- famed architect Addison Mizner.
In addition to building the City of Hollywood, Mr. Young also developed Port Everglades where Fort Lauderdale Airport is today, and he served as the first Mayor of Hollywood. The mansion is listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Places and the Florida State Heritage Register. In the 1920’s and 1930’s the mansion was the site of many special gatherings and the wedding venue for two of Mr. Young’s sons.
