A bit of history about the house-museum

Speaking about this remarkable place, it is impossible not to tell about its creator. Henry Morrison Flagler is a famous man of his time, an American business tycoon, one of the founders of the oil company, the creator of the Florida railway and many state luxury hotels. One of his creations was the estate, the construction of which was completed in 1902, when Henry himself was already 73 years old. It was here that he spent his last years of life, dying from an accident - falling from the stairs into Whitehall. Henry lived bright and full of life, died at the age of 84 years.

Interesting fact. Whitehall Manor was a wedding gift for his third wife.

Manor at West Palm Beach

The house-museum, often referred to as the “Taj Mahal of North America”, is a rich mansion that stands out among others. Its area is more than 50 thousand square meters, in which there are about 55 rooms. He served as a hotel for 34 years, and became a museum at the initiative of Henry's granddaughter . She made this decision because of the fear of demolishing the building, which was very likely in 1959.

The guest suites of the estate - that is striking in its idleness and elegance. More than a century has passed, and the rooms of the estate, even by today's standards, look modern, stylish and fashionable. Exceptions are just some of the features.

Curious to know. Toilets and bathrooms are equipped with a very primitive. For example, a toilet stands in a corner of a room in an open space; it protects it from the whole situation only with something like a screen - a frame on which thick curtains hang.

The abundance of marble, precious antique pieces of furniture, wall decor, curtain design, unique comfortable furniture, interesting lighting - all this plunges into the world of the rich in this world. The European castle of the gilded era - this is how you can call this unique estate. The deluxe rooms of the Henry Flagler House Museum can compete with the current rooms in five-star hotels.
