The First Three Wooden Forts
The Saint Augustine Historical Society invites you to attend the unveiling of the historic marker "ST AUGUSTINE ON ANASTASIA ISLAND" on September 8, 2016, at 11:00 A.M. in the open field (overflow parking lot) just north of the St. Augustine Alligator Farm (999 Anastasia Boulevard).

Through the generosity of the Alligator Farm and Mr. David Drysdale, the Society is able to place this marker in a highly visible and easily accessed location.

The First Three Wooden Forts by Eugene Lyon contextualizes the importance of this marker.
