Haunted Florida Ep.3: Henry Flagler & unsolved mysteries of Palm Beach

When talking about Palm Beach ghosts and haunted places, there is no better place to start than from the “father” of Palm Beach, Standard Oil tycoon & The Railroad Visionary Henry Morrison Flagler. The man who changed Florida and Palm Beach forever. Today I am going to visit the Whitehall, Henry Flagler's Gilded Age estate in Palm Beach, also known as Flagler Museum. This mansion was built as a wedding present for his third wife, Mary Lily Kenan Flagler. The couple used the home as a winter retreat from 1902 until Flagler's death in 1913, establishing the Palm Beach season for the wealthy of the Gilded Age. This is the place where Flagler fell down a flight of marble stairs and died of the complications due to the fall later. But the key word here is “allegedly fell". Guys, get ready for a very strange story!You know how they say that every haunted place is haunted because the ghosts have an unfinished business. I think the ghosts of Whitehall are trying to tell us something and make us resolve more than a 100 year old mystery.
