    Historic Tours of Flagler College showcase the architectural heritage and fascinating history of the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, a nationally designated historic landmark building, built by Henry Flagler in 1887. Millionaire industrialist and developer Henry M. Flagler envisioned creating an American Riviera in St. Augustine. His Hotel Ponce de Leon, now Flagler College, beautifully recaptures the architectural spirit of old Europe.

    Presidents, dignitaries, royalty, and the upper class walked the halls of this magnificent hotel during its heyday. Designed for entertainment, relaxation, and grandeur, Flagler's hotel incorporated all of the modern conveniences of the time, including electricity, running water, and a Thomas Edison clock, one of the first-ever to be used in a public space. The Ponce de Leon is also home to the largest collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany stained glass windows, with over 79 windows decorate the Dining Hall, which is included on the tour.

    While nothing can compete with seeing this building in person, for now, Flagler College is offering a virtual tour. To view it, go here.
