The Story Of Flagler College’s First 50 Years Told Through The People, Places And Things That Shaped It

Each of the 50 people, places and things that we selected represent a major milestone in the development of Flagler College. Our selections include the expected and the unexpected, ordinary, everyday objects and the extraordinary people that helped us turn nouns into verbs and change lives. Together, they tell our story. But it is not the complete story. Like all milestones, they indicate how far we have come. They do not measure the thousands of stepping stones, those everyday moments, the hard work and dedication, that got us to those key celebrated moments in our rich history.

Toadally Awesome

The iconic frog fountain at the entrance to Ponce Hall is more than 125 years old and the frogs still haven’t croaked. These immortal frogs are part of what makes the Flagler College campus unique and unforgettable. The College is filled with awesome and intricate architectural detail from the gilded age. It is a special place to live, study and visit. Today, the former Hotel Ponce de Leon is a National Historic Landmark.
