Odell Co. organ, located in the Music Room, and the Steinway Model B art-case grand piano, located in the Drawing Room, can be heard at 3:30 p.m. each Sunday afternoon through November 24th.

In an age before television, radio or movies, music was the most popular form of entertainment, and an organ like the one in Whitehall’s Music Room was the most impressive musical instrument of the period. A built-in organ is a hallmark of a Gilded Age home. The organ built for Whitehall was made by Odell and is fitted with one thousand two hundred forty-nine pipes.

So important was this instrument in the daily life of Whitehall that the Flagler’s employed an organist to live at Whitehall the entire season. Much of what we know about daily life at Whitehall comes from scrapbooks meticulously kept by the resident organist. During the late 19th Century, marches were the most popular kind of music and Flagler was particularly fond of hearing them.

The Piano and Organ Demonstrations feature the following titles from the Museum’s Archives:

Palm Limited March
Palm Limited is a two-step, composed by Harry J. Lincoln, in 1905.

Palm Beach Tango
Palm Beach Tango, composed by Chas. E. Roat and published by Music Company of same name (Battle Creek, Michigan)

Down Where the Pineapples Grow
Down Where the Pineapples Grow, composed by E. Casler-Wilson, 1913

You’re a Grand Old Flag
You’re a Grand Old Flag, George M. Cohan, 1906

Processional March
