Synopsis: HENRY FLAGLER'S birth in Hopewell, New York in 1830, was less than extraordinary. His formative years held little to presage the young business- to wealth man's rise meteoric and power in concert with some of the most influential industrialists of his day. The discovery and development of Florida and the ultimate achievement of building a railroad from Jacksonville to Key West was unimaginable even as he amassed a fortune in the oil industry. It is, then, prophetic that Flagler's legacy in Palm Beach is most visibly defined by a hundred-year-old white chapel named The Royal Poinciana, a small cottage called Sea Gull and a marble mansion known as the opulent residence built for Whitehall - the 'Great Man's', third wife. Today each of the three buildings adorn lakefront property adjacent to where The Royal Poinciana Hotel, built by Flagler in 1894, once stood. The Chapel was originally conceived for the edification of guests at the luxury hotel and specifically designated to offer cultural and musical as well as religious programs of the very finest quality. The Little Church By The Trail has been moved three times before its present disposition to 60 Cocoanut Row. The modest wood building, refurbished and enlarged, and the grounds surrounding the 'Victorian Gothic' structure, have witnessed many transitions over the years as has the human populace that devotedly guided and governed the workings of the Chapel to fulfill Flagler's precepts. Many eloquent theologians have graced the dais of the Chapel. Dr. George Morgan Ward was Flagler's minister serving for thirty years. Dr. Samuel Lindsay, dubbed, "the friendliest man in Palm Beach", held sway for over thirty years before Dr. Thomas William Kirkman 'retired' from Royal Oak, Michigan and returned peace to a Chapel suffering
