Welcome

WELCOME and thank you for your interest in the “Save the Shippey” project. As you will learn from the information on this website, the “Shippey House” is an historically significant structure that has had a storied past. As an “original” (circa 1914-18) Dade County Pine structure, the Shippey is significant not only for its design and construction as one of a handful of two-story “cottages”, but also for its history, as the residence of Judge Fred B. Shippey, Broward County’s second “official” Judge (following J. F. Brunn, Broward’s first Judge). How Fred came to become Broward’s second Judge is a typically colorful “Florida” story detailed in this website.
