December 25th Bok Tower and Christmas Décor at the Pinewood Estate
Today we will take the guided tour of the grounds to learn about the gardening! “Only an innate pessimist could go out in the vicinity of Lake Wales, see the beautiful scenery, groves, lakes and not acknowledge that Lake Wales is the best, a good place to live in and a good place to go to heaven from” Anyone who has made a pilgrimage to the soaring symmetry of Bok Tower does not doubt the accuracy of that statement. Named for its’ builder, Ladies Home Journal editor and Pulitzer Prize winner Edward W. Bok, the tower is 205 feet of coquina stone and pink Georgia marble, a Gothic-inspired spire with a frieze of Florida wildlife crowned by corner finials of eagles and pinnacles of herons, with a massive yellow brass repousse door depicting the story of creation from Genesis. Inside are carved the words of Bok’s Dutch grandmother, “Make you the world a bit better and beautiful because you have lived in it.” Bok’s creation personifies that philosophy. He transformed a 300-foot mini-mountain (highest point of land in peninsula Florida) into a 130-acre sanctuary, utilizing the genius of the dean of American Landscape Architects Fredrick Law Olmstead, whose other credits along with his Father include the White House, Central Park and the Biltmore estate. For his Florida miracle, he imported tons of soil as base for a thousand imported oaks, 20,000 ferns, and azaleas, 300 magnolias and a hundred palms, two of which were planted by President Coolidge at the dedication in 1929. Everywhere there are exotic plants, orchids and jasmine and bauhinia, framing quiet corners for relaxation and meditation, for comprehending the words of naturalist John Burroughs prominently posted near the entrance: “I come here to find myself. It’s so easy to get lost in the world.” Explore Pinewood Estate’s beautiful gardens and 20 room Mediterranean-style mansion built in the early 1930s. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is considered one of the finest examples of Mediterranean-style architecture in Florida.

Saturday February 9 Viscaya, an American Palace
Vizcaya, the winter home of International Harvester vice president James Deering, offers a unique glimpse of a vanished lifestyle in America. Today one of South Florida’s leading attractions, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens provides a window to both the history of Miami, graced by the villa since its completion in 1916; and to the Italian Renaissance, represented in the Museum’s architecture. Its art and furnishings portray 400 years of European history.
Viscaya was originally an estate of 180 acres, designed to resemble a typical Italian villa, self-sufficient, with a dairy, poultry house, mule stable, greenhouse, and staff residences. The house and gardens are the creation of three architects: F. Burall Hoffman designed the buildings; Diego Suarez planned the gardens; and Paul Chaflin was the general artistic supervisor for every phase of the project. Together they created an estate that looked as if it had been lived in by succeeding generations of the same family with each generation adding their own period furnishings of the time. All of the decorative elements including furniture, lighting fixtures, doors and fireplaces were purchased by Deering on shopping expeditions throughout Europe. The house took two years to build. The formal gardens were not completed until 1921 due to the outbreak of World War I. During construction, 1000 workers were employed, representing nearly 10% of Miami’s population. After Deering’s death in 1925, a minimal staff maintained the house. The hurricane of 1926, which devastated much of Miami, severely damaged the estate. In 1952, Miami-Dade County purchased Vizcaya and opened it as a museum. Extensive restoration has brought the house and the remaining 50 acres back to the way they appeared in Deering’s day.
Nearly 200,000 people visit Vizcaya each year including some of the world’s leading dignitaries such as President Reagan, Pope John Paul II, Queen Elizabeth of England and King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain. In 1994, the historic Summit of the Americas was held at Vizcaya with President Clinton and the 34 leaders of the Western Hemisphere.
Vizcaya, possessing national significance to the history of the United States, has been designated a National Historic Landmark.
