Each year, the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum proudly hosts a series of Sea Your History Weekends featuring Smithsonian scholars, special tours, wooden boat building demonstrations and unique experiences that connect visitors with the vast maritime history of the Nation's Oldest Port.
In 2014, each event will celebrate a different influence on St. Augustine's maritime culture from the early European settlers to the contributions of African-American and Native American groups.
Plan ahead and reserve a room at the Agustin for an exciting weekend in the St. Augustine you won't want to miss!
Discover the Spanish and Menorcan influences on early St. Augustine that has been woven into the tapestry of our 450 year-old city from the first days of the city's discovery in 1565. When Menorcan immigrants moved north from New Smyrna to St. Augustine in the mid-1700s, they played a critical role in the growth of the St. Augustine Light Station.
Their newest exhibit, At Home with the Harns, includes the story of second assistant keeper Jerome Lopez who served under Head Keeper William Harn.
Join them on August 23rd and 24th to celebrate this important part of the light station's history!
