Overview

Flagler College's historic campus is located just four miles from the Atlantic Ocean in the heart of St. Augustine, Fla., the “nation’s oldest city.”The college is named for Henry Morrison Flagler, a Gilded Age industrialist, railroad pioneer and partner with John D. Rockefeller in Standard Oil. In 1888, Flagler built the Hotel Ponce de Leon, his first in a series of luxury resorts along Florida’s east coast. A masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture and the first major poured-in-place concrete building in the United States is now known as Ponce de Leon Hall. This National Historic Landmark serves as the centerpiece for the Flagler College.The grand hotel launched the careers of young architects John Carrere and Thomas Hastings who are noted most for the New York Public Library and the House and Senate Office Buildings adjacent to the Capitol in Washington, D.C.The Edison Electric Company powered the building with steam heat and 4,000 electric lights, making the Ponce one of the nation’s first electrified buildings. Louis Comfort Tiffany is credited with the building’s interior design including the stained glass and mosaics. Murals were completed by George Willoughby Maynard and Virgilio Tojetti.The hotel was gifted to Flagler College when the institution was founded in 1968. Since then, the college has spent more than $43 million dollars restoring the historic campus and adding new buildings.

Definitely a place to see, the man was such a visionary. He did so much for Florida. The beautiful architecture of this place is stunning. Tours can be taken of the College but we did not do that.

Beautiful Spanish architecture to walk through. Well manicured grounds. We were on the Trolley and walked from the Presbyterian Church to the stop across Seville and King. Very nice walk.

The place is unbelievably beautiful. Intricate stone work, glass work, wood work, tile work. Fantastic. A must see if you appreciate what an artisan can accomplish.

Beautiful little campus. Nice to walk around on the grounds and check out the various historic buildings. Ideally located in the heart of the Old City, and easy to get to. Does not take long to walk around, but would recommend.
