About Flagler and establishment of Florida East Coast Railway system and gilded-age hotels in Florida
HENRY FLAGLER, who had partnered with Rockefeller to co-found Standard Oil, was a wealthy entrepenuer who traveled in Florida in the late 1800’s. Henry felt Florida had great potential as a well-heeled tourist destination but felt the state was lacking in transportation infrastructure and luxury hotels. He gradually bought up numerous small railroads throughout the state's east coast and established THE FLORIDA EAST COAST RAILROAD. By 1894, Flagler’s railroad system reached what is today known as West Palm Beach. Flagler constructed the Hotel Royal Poinciana on the Eastern shore of Lake Worth in what is now known as Palm Beach. He also built The Breakers Hotel on the ocean side of Palm Beach, and WhitehalL, his private 75-room, 100,000 square foot winter home WHICH AFTER HIS DEATH BECOME A HOTEL. He also built the Spanish Renaissance Hotel Alcazar (now the Lightner Museum) in St. Augustine and several other “ritzy hotels” in the 1890s. The building of the hotels, coupled with railroad access to them, established Palm Beach and Florida as the winter get-away for the wealthy members of America’s Gilded Age.
