Overview

Flagler College's historic campus is located just four miles from the Atlantic Ocean in the heart of St. Augustine, Fla., the “nation’s oldest city.”The college is named for Henry Morrison Flagler, a Gilded Age industrialist, railroad pioneer and partner with John D. Rockefeller in Standard Oil. In 1888, Flagler built the Hotel Ponce de Leon, his first in a series of luxury resorts along Florida’s east coast. A masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance architecture and the first major poured-in-place concrete building in the United States is now known as Ponce de Leon Hall. This National Historic Landmark serves as the centerpiece for the Flagler College.The grand hotel launched the careers of young architects John Carrere and Thomas Hastings who are noted most for the New York Public Library and the House and Senate Office Buildings adjacent to the Capitol in Washington, D.C.The Edison Electric Company powered the building with steam heat and 4,000 electric lights, making the Ponce one of the nation’s first electrified buildings. Louis Comfort Tiffany is credited with the building’s interior design including the stained glass and mosaics. Murals were completed by George Willoughby Maynard and Virgilio Tojetti.The hotel was gifted to Flagler College when the institution was founded in 1968. Since then, the college has spent more than $43 million dollars restoring the historic campus and adding new buildings.

We walked through Flagler years ago with the student who was a friend of the family. This time we took the $10, student-led guided tour, which was wonderful. Toured the courtyard, the lobby, the dining hall, and the ladies lounge. If you're interested at all...More

The only way you'll get to see the famous Tiffany glass windows is by doing this tour, and you get your money's worth. The young guide, Rose, was incredibly slick in her patter, highly informative and professional. Really enjoyed it, highly recommended.

You can walk in and tour the courtyard and lobby or take a scheduled tour. It is a beautiful property and one of the gems in our historic area.

We caught the first tour in the morning on a Sunday while it was still relatively cool. Students at the college led the tour around the campus and the main building. Lots of history and Tiffany glass everywhere!!
