  • Whitehall was a 55-room mansion designed in the Neoclassical Revival style by Carrere & Hastings and built by Henry Flagler in 1901 as a wedding present for his wife Mary Lily Kenan Flagler, then later sold by her heirs to investors in 1925. The building served as a luxury hotel from 1925-1959.
