St. Augustine, founded as a Spanish military base in 1565, is the oldest continuously occupied European established city in the continental United States. Laid out around a central plaza, the streets are part of the original town plan made centuries ago. The city, located on the Atlantic Coast in the northeastern edge of the state, is a popular tourist destination. Its Spanish Colonial style buildings, like the Lightner Museum pictured here, make it unique. Henry Flagler, previously mentioned in connection with the Florida Keys, brought the railroad to St. Augustine in 1900, making it a popular getaway for the very wealthy. Some of the grand hotels and mansions from this era still stand, a number serving as university buildings for Flagler College.
