Bok Tower Gardens, The Singing Tower in 2011

Finally took some old video off of my Flip camera, this was from my visit to Bok Tower Gardens in 2011. The Singing Tower, it's quite impressive in person, as is the rest of the property.
The founder was Edward W. Bok. For 30 years he acted as Editor for Ladie's Home Journal. If you check out the members of his family, they were all quite accomplished. His wife, Mary was the daughter of the previous editor, Louisa Knapp Curtis, and later started the Curtis Institute of Music.

Bok Tower Gardens is located in Lake Wales, Florida. It's one of those places where if you are looking or even not looking for peace, you are bound to find it. It's really kind of magical.
