In fact, St. Augustine residents had a public park before the first settlers waded ashore at either Jamestown, Virginia, or Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts. The city also boasts a long list of other "oldest" or "first" distinctions. It is home to the oldest house, the oldest religious site, the oldest masonry fort, the first settlement for free blacks and many others.

It features directories to a variety of historic sites and points of interest in the nation's oldest city and as it expands will include hotel and other information of use to visitors.To visit the new St. Augustine section, please go to www.exploresouthernhistory.com/staugustine1.
The section will be expanding with the addition of other new pages over the coming week, so check back and feel free to drop a comment and let me know what you think or if there is another site in St. Augustine you would like to see added!
