The Lightner Museum in Saint Augustine Florida

While visiting Saint Augustine, Florida you find many ancient architectural structures downtown. Here is the Lightner Museum of Art which was formerly The Hotel Alcazar which was built in 1888 by the hotel magnate Henry Flagler. This was one of the first multi-story concrete wall structures in America. It was built in the style of the Moorish palace in Southern Spain. The hotel was closed in 1932 and was sold from the Florida East Coast Hotel Company in 1947 to become the Lightner Museum in 1974. This is a view of the facade of the building from the front.
