- Imam Ali. (via youth-memories)
Perched on one of the highest points of pennisular Florida, surrounded by hundreds of acres of orange groves and a 15 feet deep moat is a beautiful centerpiece, a soaring 200 foot pink marble tower. The great brass door, the tower’s only door and entrance, is closed to the public at all times — unless you are a private member. Presenting the Bok Tower Gardens. These historic gardens were founded in 1921 by a Dutch immigrant, Edward W. Book, the editor of Ladies Home Journal. The gardens were designed by the same developer of Center Park, in NYC, and the tower, added later in 1927, was designed by Milton B Medary. It is called the Singing Tower.
Also on this property is the Pinewood Estate, a twenty-room Mediterranean mansion built between 1930-1932 by a steel tycoon as a winter residence. Unlike the tower, this mansion is open to the public, and you can eat peacefully amongst the orange groves with the view of this Singing Tower.
