St Augustine Florida - Oldest City in the Nation

View All Collections

The city of St. Augustine was founded and established in 1565 by Spanish Admiral Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles. He was sent by King Phillip II to explore and colonize the Florida territory, instructing him to drive out any pirates and non-Spanish settlers. He arrived in Florida on August 28, 1565, the Feast Day of St. Augustine, and fortified a small Native American village with his 600 soldiers and settlers. He named the village St. Augustine in honor of the revered saint of the Roman Catholic Church, and it has since become the oldest permanent European settlement in North America. In 1586 St. Augustine was pillaged and burned to the ground by the English corsair Francis Drake. The citizens rebuilt their city, but it was obvious that they needed greater security. After the British established colonies in Georgia and the Carolinas, Spain authorized the building of a stone fort to protect St. Augustine from attack, helping to preserve the strength of the city. The construction of Castillo de San Marcos, a stone fortress, began in 1672. The completion in 1696 allowed the town to survive a siege by Carolina Governor James Moore, who attacked and burned St. Augustine in 1702. After switching hands several times, Florida was sold by Spain to the United States in 1821, and Florida became the 27th state admitted to the Union in 1845, moving the capital of East Florida from St. Augustine to the new town of Tallahassee.
