A trip to Palm Beach would not be complete without a visit to "Whitehall," historic Flagler Mansion. Henry Morrison Flagler, 1830-1913, was the founder of the Standard Oil Company with John D. Rockefeller. When Flagler built this white palace for his bride, Mary Lily Keenan, as a wedding present, he spared no expense. The opulence of The Great Hall, the Louis XV Ballroom and the Louis XIV Music Room, now restored to their original glory, were designed for entertaining in the grand manner and served the Flagler's well. They now offer an elegant setting for cultural and charitable events. Upstairs, the Jean Louise Flagler collection of laces and the museum collection of antique dolls and toys can be seen along
with touring exhibits.
When Henry and Lily Flagler lived in "Whitehall" it was a happy home filled with music and laughter; to the credit of the officers and trustees of the museum, it still is. The gift shop features Victorian gifts of considerable charm, and don't miss a look at "The Rambler," Flagler's private
railway car on view in the Pavilion.
