Flagler Museum: Gold Telegram

The telegram was presented to Henry Flagler when he completed the Key West railroad in 1912. Also: walk through Flagler's fancy private railroad car, the first one to make the trip. Flagler died, like Elvis, in his home bathroom.

Flagler Museum: Solid Gold Telegram

No telegram, but we toured the outside of Flagler's Palm Beach home (Whitehall), the Music Room, and Flagler's No. 91 rail car with inside living quarters.

The telegram -- one of the museum's most famous artifacts -- is usually on display in the second-floor Flagler-Kenan History Room
