+ Local woman donates pool table to Princess Place
Visitors to the porch at Flagler County’s Princess Place Lodge often enjoy perusing photo albums of what the lodge looked like when Princess Angela Sherbatoff lived there.

Beverly Henry, of Moultrie Trails in St. Augustine, visited Princess Place with a group one day and spotted one of the photographs showing a large turn-of-the-century pool table in the large room of the lodge.

As luck would have it, Henry just happened to have a large turn-of-the century pool table that had been in her family for more than 20 years and was donated to her by a friend. A few phone calls later and Henry donated the table to be a part of the display at the Princess Place.

Henry also donated a roll top desk similar to one that was in the lodge.

“This is a credit to the hard work and dedication of the Citizens Support Organization and county staff,” Commission Chairman George Hanns said. “Flagler County would like to thank Beverly Henry for her generous donation.”
