Why simply impress your guests when you can inspire them? There are many beautiful places in Florida, but only one is closely identified with American corporate history:


Whitehall was the winter home of Henry Flagler, who was the creative mind behind the most profitable corporation in history, Standard Oil. In 1902, Flagler built this Gilded Age estate in Palm Beach overlooking Lake Worth. The 75-room Beaux-Arts palace was hailed 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 …”

No matter the occasion, the Museum’s spaces offer an outstanding backdrop that will not only amaze your guests but expose them to such an important part of America’s history. When you choose the Flagler Museum for your private Event, you are also contributing to the preservation of this National Historic Landmark and continuing the legacy of corporate philanthropy created during America’s Gilded Age.

At this time, Corporate Events are a privilege of the Chairman level of Membership.
