Henry Flagler basically paid for this wonderful church to be built. It was built in memory of his daughter, Jennie Louise Benedict.
Flagler, his wife, daughter and granddaughter are burid in a small mausoleum attached to the church.
St. Augustine is a riot of outrageous architecture. I'm not sure how one would lable the style (eclectic Floridian?) but the turn of the century buildings all seem to have brilliant colors (mostly shades of red), plenty of gables and gaudy ornamentation.
This photo shows Grace United Methodist Church which is a classic representation of the type of buildings that were built in St. Augustine around the year 1900. The spire is terracotta.
This building was used as a drug store from 1887 until the 1960's. It is now a museum with free admission.
First Catholic Church in the United States
An interesting complex. The cross here can be seen for a couple of miles. The first church as seen in the picture below is a very small chapel.
The Columbia restaraunt dates back to the turn of the century and got its start in Tampas Ybor City. It specialises in Spanish and Cuban dishes.
