My family and I are locals who wanted to find hidden treasures in downtown to visit, then bring our out of town guests to. We had been on the highly recommended Red Train, Scenic Cruise, Ripley's, Flagler College tour, and Lightener Museum. The gem of...More

If you are in to architecture and garden landscape this is your place. The homes were each unique and the winding gardens surrounding them were worth price of admission. When I say gardens though its not just flowers though; it's also the landscaping. Quite frankly...More

We were very disappointed in the condition of the grounds. Yes, these buildings are very old and should show some wear and tear but the grounds are pitiful. Weeds and debris abound. It appears no one is cleaning the property. It could be beautiful. The...More

This group of buildings are on their original foundations - which is impressive in its self, but it has allowed the cobblestones, fountains and plants to mature into a beautiful landscape. I took a tone of photos!! And could not get enough of the statues...More

I wouldn't have found this on my own, but another tourist said how much they enjoyed it. A city block of historic homes through the decade collected by a man and preserved for US. Really worth looking around. I understand they are struggling with the...More
