First Colony Exhibit at Government House
First Colony: Our Spanish Origins is an in-depth, interactive exhibit currently on display at the Government House Museum in St. Augustine's historic district.
The bilingual exhibit covers the archeology, history, and personal stories of the people who established this "first colony" in 1565, long before Jamestown was founded. St. Augustine's first colonial immigrants were a diverse group of Spanish, native Americans, and free and enslaved Africans. Together, they created America's original "melting pot" -- a rich, multicultural society that was new then, but might seem familiar today.
The First Colony exhibit is housed in the Government House Museum near the Plaza in the Historic District of St. Augustine.
