Speechless Sundays - The Golden Hour at Flagler College in St. Augustine Historic District

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty

Flagler College in St. Augustine

Flagler College was originally a hotel, built by Henry Flagler in 1885-1887 and named the Ponce de Leon Hotel. In 1968, Flagler College opened as an accredited liberal arts institute. The College is on the west side of the St. Augustine Historic district, at Cordova and King Streets. The architecture is world class. This was shot from the front of the Ringhaver Student Center looking east towards the main campus building.

Frank & Sharon-I love the picture, looks like you took it at just the right moment.  The carriage out front is nice too.

Hi Frank and Sharon, Having lived in Palm Beach, Fla for some time, I became familiar with this man's work. His residence there would be preserved by his daughter as the Flagler Museum .

Jody, I could write a lot more about this shot - I think I could even write a short story (including the carriage of course :)).

William, Henry Flagler is one of the most influential pioneers in our state. He put Florida on the map.

Debi, you should see it in person. The craftsmanship honestly rivals Europe's finest.

Tony & Darcy, it is my pleasure. Glad you enjoyed it!

Marcia, Flagler is definitely right at the top for what he did for our state. I just love St. Augustine. More photos will be coming. We're going to be visiting there a lot this year helping a friend with a Film Festival.

This building is cool.  At first glance I would never have thought this was a college.
