And his epic historic home in Palm Beach boasts a whopping 55 rooms full of period furnishings and all kinds of other lavish décor. Plus, Flagler had a secret passage so he could duck out on bores. Brilliance.

Tips from foursquare
Our favorite museum in Palm Beach County, this tour will leave you in awe of both the structure and Henry Flagler, without whom there might be no "Florida" today. -WV
Spend the day exploring Florida from its roots. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 55-room museum features guided tours and changing exhibits.
Standard Oil cofounder Henry Flagler built this Beaux Arts home in 1902. His private railcar is out on the lawn and fun to see as well.
A waiter stole a wedding card from our table FUCK this place. Manager was an asshole about it too.
A visit here makes a fun rainy day activity, although the grounds are most lovely when it’s nice out. It’s a great way to get a feel for Palm Beach’s history, especially its roots in the Gilded Age.
