Architecture and other landmarks

"In Loving Memory of William Howland Fell of New York who erected this fountain in 1887. 
He was a winter resident of this city for many years and died here May 2, 1911. 
He loved nature and was kind to all animals".

What a lovely memorial. 

Saint Augustin is full of historic landmarks. The two largest ones, the former Alcazar Hotel, now the Lightner Museum and Saint Augustin City Hall and the former Ponce de Leon Hotel, now Flagler College are beautiful old buildings in the Spanish colonial style. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, wealthy people, including several US Presidents came here to party and live "the resort life".
