ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA PROPERTY EST. 1888 The Moorish Revival Casa Monica Resort & Spa has long been the heart of St. Augustine. Once owned by railroad pioneer, hotel magnate, and Standard Oil co-founder Henry Flagler, it has been a landmark of this historic city since 1888. The Depression forced the hotel to close in 1932, and it remained vacant until 1968, when it was dedicated as the St. John’s County Courthouse. In 1997, the building underwent yet another conversion, to reopen in early 2000 as a luxury hotel. The restored lobby boasts handpainted, gold-leafed archways and rich Spanish tapestries. While offering state-of-the-art amenities, each boutique-style guestroom is appropriately appointed with furnishings that reflect the rich history of the community. St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the United States.
