In Saint Augustine, Florida we are visiting the famous Ponce de Leon Hotel (that is now Flagler College). It was originally built by Henry Flagler in 1888 as a Winter Palace for the rich and famous to travel to during winter cold months. The front of the Ponce de Leon has a very large 10,000 square foot private courtyard. The surrounding building has arches and a lovely porch looking out in three directions. Here there were and still are rocking chairs and tables for people to relax.
