The tour showcased the splendor of Whitehall’s Grand Hall, Drawing Room, formal Dining Room, Grand Ballroom, and Music Room. The First Ladies also visited the Flagler Kenan Pavilion, which houses Henry Flagler’s Railcar No. 91. The special guests enjoyed a performance of the “Anvil Chorus” from the opera Il Trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi, one of Henry Flagler’s favorite pieces, on the Music Room’s 1,249-pipe Odell organ. It was an exciting and educational experience for all involved.
Each year, the Flagler Museum hosts almost 100,000 visitors from virtually every state in the Union, and dozens of countries around the world.
