This 55,000-square-foot mansion was once home to South Florida's famous oil and railroad tycoon Henry Flagler. If you're unfamiliar with his legacy, he basically constructed the whole of South Florida. And his epic historic home in Palm Beach boasts a whopping 55 rooms full of period furnishings and all kinds of other lavish décor. Plus, Flagler had a secret passage so he could duck out on bores. Brilliance.
