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.

History Loves Company

Twenty years ago, Flagler College Enactus started a student-run tour business of our historic campus. These tours grew into two retail stores and an online business operated by 25 students. The Flagler Legacy business serves as a living classroom and the profits earned are reinvested in scholarships and internships. Our tours attract over 50,000 visitors a year. A tourism economic impact study found that our Legacy business adds $14 million annually to the St. Augustine economy.
