About our Mar-a-Lago news
Latest news on Mar-A-Lago, a historic 20th-century Mediterranean-style mansion located in Palm Beach, Florida. The 126-room estate includes a private beach club, a 20,000-square-foot ballroom, and a spa. It was originally built by cereal-company heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and her husband, Edward F. Hutton.
In 1985, Donald Trump bought the property for $5 million and converted it into a private club. Trump has spent millions of dollars on renovations, including the addition of a 20,000-square-foot ballroom. In 2017, the club was designated a National Historic Landmark.
Since its opening, Mar-A-Lago has been a popular destination for celebrities, socialites, and business moguls. It has also been the site of numerous high-profile events, including weddings, galas, and fundraisers. In recent years, the club has been criticized for its close association with the Trump administration. In August 2022, the FBI searched the property and seized documents.
