Built in 1902 as a wedding present for Henry Morrison Flagler's bride, Mary Lily Kenan, Whitehall is now open to the public as the Flagler Museum. Located on the shores of Lake Worth in Palm Beach, this National Historic Landmark has been meticulously restored and is climate controlled. Events are a privilege of Membership.
Grand Hall - Entertain your guests in Gilded Age style with cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres in the 4,800 square foot Grand Hall. Designed in the Beaux Arts style by famed architects Carrere & Hastings, the Museum itself is an awe-inspiring work of art. Guests can explore the Museum's first floor rooms, including the Library, Music Room, Dining Room, Ballroom, and Drawing Room, while Docents are available to answer any questions about the Museum, the collection, and its rich history. This experience alone will make your event stand above all the others.
Courtyard - Open to the sublime South Florida weather, the Courtyard's tranquility is broken only by the gentle bubbling of the fountain, a copy of the famous Venus Fountain that graces the Boboli Gardens in Italy.
West Room - With its subdued tones and refined Mediterranean ambiance, the West Room is a perfect choice for your evening's festivities. The West Room and adjoining Lake Room, with its terrace overlooking Lake Worth and the West Palm Beach skyline, is a magnificent venue.
Flagler Kenan Pavilion - The new Flagler Kenan Pavilion, opened in February 2005, was designed to evoke the opulence and grandeur of a turn-of-the-century railway palace. Enjoy unrivaled views of Lake Worth and the West Palm Beach skyline while your Guests climb aboard Flagler's private railcar. A venue truly unlike any other you will find in South Florida ... or anywhere.
