Sample McDougald House

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Sample-McDougald House was built in 1916 by Albert Neal Sample, a Pompano Beach area pioneer and farmer, and is now one of south Florida’s premier historic house museums. In 1943, the house was purchased by William D. McDougald, a former Deerfield Beach farmer and law enforcement officer. The house was then donated by the McDougald family to the Sample-McDougald House Preservation Society to restore and share with the public. The home’s original structure and interior spaces were unaltered and not modernized, showing all of the original and authentic architectural features of the home. In May 2001, the entire 5,000 sq. ft. structure was moved to its current location. After a $2.5 Million restoration, the home opened to the public in 2012. The City of Pompano Beach designated the house grounds as Centennial Park in 2008, in recognition of the municipality's 100th anniversary of incorporation. The majority of the furniture and decorative art pieces inside the home belonged to the McDougald and Sample families.
