1. McKee Jungle Garden Gates Marker
Inscription. These gates, once the property of Henry Flagler, adorned McKee Jungle Gardenís main entrance from 1932 until 1967. Thereafter, they graced the residence of one of Arthur McKeeís daughters, Mary-Katherine Semon until the time of her husbandís death, when their son, Arthur McKee Semon then lived in the house. Mrs. Arthur Semon generously returned the gates to the newly restored McKee Botanical Garden in 2001.
