    Favorite thing: FLAGLER COLLEGE Was once the old Ponce de Leon Hotel built in 1885-1888, established by Henry M. Flagler, co-founder of Standard Oil (Sunoco). Flagler is responsible for turning St. Augustine into a fashionable resort in the late 1800's and built roads and resort hotels.
    The college was founded in 1968.

    See Flagler College....

    Favorite thing: See Flagler College. Originally the Flagler Hotel, Flagler College is hardly the oldest structure in St Augustine but, it may be the most interesting. Built in the early 1900s of Spanish/Moorish architecture, it contains a labyrinth of courtyards , fountains and hallways which are somewhat besmirched by the existance of a recreational area and pool on its rear grounds...lending a country clubbish atmosphere to an otherwise splendid ediface.

    Fondest memory: Seeing Neil Simons 'Torch Song Trilogy' followed by a rather good improvisational play put on by the Flagler College drama department...twas not planned and just happened to coincide with an impromptu trip to the area. It was surprisingly well performed.
