New from Arcadia Publishing and local author Summer Bozeman is St. Augustine in the Then & Now series, which compares the past to present in over 200 images.
St. Augustine was established in 1565, over four decades before the Virginia Company settled Jamestown and five decades before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. Henry Flagler transformed the sleepy port into a winter resort for the affluent, and the quaint college town still displays some of the nation’s oldest and most beautiful architecture.
