Other than St. Augustine’s battle history due to the Spanish, French, and English fighting for control of the city, there is a lot more history to be found within the city limits of this great community. Henry Flagler discovered the treasure of this city back in the 1880’s and, like you now, he also searched homes for sale in St. Augustine. Mr. Flagler brought about St. Augustine’s Golden Era through his many contributions to the city as he desired to create a winter resort for wealthy Americans. Flagler College, the Casa Monica Hotel and several churches were all built during this Era and still reflect the prestige Mr. Flagler brought to the city. Many of the homes for sale in historic St. Augustine have been inspired by the grandeur of this portion of the city’s past.
The Castillo de San Marcos, The St. Augustine Lighthouse, The Lightner Museum, The Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse, Mission Nombre de Dios… I cannot even begin to name all the historic places of interest you will find as you search for homes in historic St. Augustine as they are far too numerous to list here. My suggestion is that you come for a visit, schedule a horse & carriage tour, a trolley tour, or rent bikes or scooters and explore the area and view Historic Downtown St. Augustine real estate for yourself. You will quickly fall in love with the city as you see the effects of the immense and diverse history on which St. Augustine was built. St. Augustine embraces this history which is apparent through community events & celebrations, the emphasis on the arts, and in the impressive architecture of the homes for sale in historic St. Augustine.
