St. Augustine is revered as a gateway through time, a city to discover the early history of Florida, as well as America’s very oldest community. It is a tribute to its full history and proud past. Having survived over 430 years, it is proud to be the oldest city in the United States. In North American terms, St. Augustine is an ancient city, founded 42 years before Jamestown was colonized by England, and 55 years before Plymouth Rock saw its pilgrims.
Tour the city and drink in the architectural structures from the nineteenth century “Gilded Age” of Henry Flagler, who brought about hotels and railroads, all of which continue to stand today in their previous glory. Now you can take part in the exploration of its fine history. Beginning in the 1950’s, St. Augustine, Florida has placed notable efforts on restoring and preserving many of its historical structures. This accomplished a “living history” among the remains and the structures, which continue to exist from each of its fulfilling centuries. These include everything from a seventeenth-century fortress, to many eighteenth-century buildings that represent the historical richness of St. Augustine.
