Description 

The Mansion called "Whitehall" was designed for a wedding present to Mary Lily Kenan of North Carolina by her husband, Henry Morrison Flagler, one of the most important men in the early development of the South Florida East Coast. Part of his extensive hotel complexes, Whitehall remains also as one of his seasonal homes and places of entertainment. It was also the work of two of America's greatest architects, John Merven Carrere and Thomas Hastings. National Register 12/5/72. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS FL-224)
