Also within the gardens is Pinewood Estate, a 20-room Mediterranean-style mansion. Originally named “El Retiro,” meaning “retreat” in Spanish, the Estate was built in the early 1930s for Charles Buck, a Bethlehem Steel vice president. The Estate is open for tours throughout the year to visitors of Bok Tower Gardens and you can buy entrance tickets at the visitor centre for about $6.00 and well worth it. The mansion is staffed by guides that give you an insight into the early days of Florida High Society and is not to be missed.
