The Flagler Museum offers a variety of options to consider for your special day. In our quest to maintain Henry Flagler’s legacy of extraordinary service, your location desires will be met at the effortlessly elegant and timeless Whitehall mansion.

On August 24th, 1901, Henry Flagler married Mary Lily Kenan and the couple soon moved into their Palm Beach estate, Whitehall, which was Flagler’s wedding present to his new bride. The 75-room Beaux-Arts palace was hailed in contemporary accounts by the New York Herald as "More wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world..." Today, Whitehall is a National Historic Landmark where you will create experiences you will remember for a lifetime.

Whitehall offers a variety of striking spaces each filled with breathtaking 19th-century splendor and enduring architectural details – marble floors, painted ceilings, and crystal chandeliers impart a classic atmosphere.
