Imagining La Florida

GE DIGITAL CAMERAAt the St Petersburg Florida Museum of History, there is an exhibit named “Imagining La Florida”

This exhibit will be on display until March 1, 2015. This details the various immigrant groups that came to St Augustine after it was founded by the Spaniards in the late 1500s.

St Augustine is America’s oldest city, which began over a century before the British established Jamestown Virginia.

It tells of all the languages spoken in St Augustine besides Spanish. This included French, Portuguese, Flemish, plus African dialects.
