Membership at the Flagler Museum
To walk through the halls of the Flagler Museum is to remember the indomitable spirit of America's Gilded Age and to be reminded that anything is possible.
In the space of one lifetime, from the end of the Civil War to the Stock Market Crash of 1929, something truly remarkable happened in America. Virtually everything we take for granted as Americans today can be traced back to this special time. Automobiles, telephones, phonographs, motion pictures, airplanes, indoor plumbing, electric lights, mass transportation, mass communication, and the modern scientific disciplines of anthropology, biology, paleontology, geology, psychology, and archaeology, all came into being during this time. The individuals who profited from these advancements and changes saw themselves as the heirs of Western Culture and as such built grand edifices, collected art on an incredible scale as symbols of their new status, and established practically all of our nation's great museums. No wonder this special time in our history is known today as America's Gilded Age.
By the 1960s, many of the homes built by these Captains of Industry and Commerce from America's Gilded Age became museums. In Palm Beach, the Flagler Museum is just such a place. Built in 1902 as a home for one of America's truly remarkable figures, the Flagler Museum is a window allowing us to look back in time through the eyes of the man most responsible for the Florida we know today. The Florida we know is a legacy of America's Gilded Age and Flagler's imagination and drive. The Flagler Museum is the place to rediscover this remarkable man and a special time in America's history.
