The National Enquirer - Lantana FL

by Jen M
(West Palm Beach FL)

Before Generoso Pope passed away and his famous celebrity magazine was sold, the headquarters were in Lantana.

Each year at Christmas time, the magazine would have a gigantic tree (always over 50 feet high and visible for miles)The entire grounds would be transformed into a winter wonderland.

I recall as a kid, getting excited to see the tree as I knew Christmas was approaching. I believe the estate/heirs of Mr. Pope sold the property and sadly, the memory faded into the Lost Florida archives.

Note from FLORIDA BACKROADS TRAVEL

Jen, thanks for the memory. I remember that tree well and it was always a treat to see it. Another big tree down your way was (is?) at Delray Beach.

I can't remember how big the Delray tree is, but it was always fun to walk inside and get an entirely new perspective.

Mystery Pictures Stars Hall of Fame

by Audrey
(Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada)

I recently scrapbooked pictures of a trip I took to Disney World when I has 12 (in 1983). I was able to piece the pictures together with the help of the internet but the Stars Hall of Fame pictures I can't decipher.

I know some of the actors in the pictures but not all. Is there a listing of the actors in the museum that I can find? I've scrapbooked the pictures but would like to add who the actors are to the pictures.

Please let me know if you can help. Also, I have pictures of a museum. It has Indian Artifacts in it. When you walked into the building it had two Indians sitting at the front with long braided hair.

There was also a large alligator with his mouth open and tons of framed pictures and stuff in glass cases. If you have any info that would help me fill in the blanks, I would greatly appreciate it.

Please e-mail me at smithaudrey17@gmail.com.

Garden of Eden

Don't forget the Garden of Eden that was located somewhere near Bristol in the Florida panhandle.

A local preacher named Callaway believed that the biblical Garden of Eden was located nearby, so he built a little entrance building and charged people admission to walk around and snoop a little.

The thing never caught on, but it operated for awhile at least.
