Talk About This Post on Authentic Florida

Paul Arnold on April 17, 2017 said:
Mr. Bok died fairly young, and Mrs. Bok wanted nothing to do with the gardens or the tower, got
married again and lived 20+ years more, and is buried with her second husband. Mr. Bok is
buried under his tower all by himself.

One of my favorite places. I always tell people to go to Bok Tower and Key West at least once in their lifetime. It is my understanding that Mr. & Mrs. Bok are buried at the tower. I also understood that he was quite the romantic. Thanks for the great walk down memory lane.
