The Flagler Museum

In 2011, the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach Florida, hosted a special  Urban Exhibit – 2011.   Joseph Urban had done significant work in the Palm Beach area – including the creation of Mar-A-Lago, the Paramount Theater, and the Bath and Tennis Club.    This exhibit ran from February 1 – April 17, 2011 and according to the museum’s description, it included rarely seen objects that have been archived for more than 90 years, including the only surviving copies of Urban’s elevations of the Mar-a-Lago estate, and the only surviving rendering of the demolished Oasis Club. A highlight of the exhibit was a recreation of the Wiener Werkstätte Showroom in New York.

Of special note was the original weathervane from the Gingerbread Castle, which Urban had called his “Gingerbread House.”  The photo of the Prince on his stead was featured on the museum’s website at the time of the creation of this Digital Library.
