St Augustine Historical Society

The St. Augustine Historical Society is the oldest continuously operating museum and historical society in Florida. Beginning in 1881 as an informal group that met in private homes to discuss topics of historical and scientific interest, the society formally organized on New Year's Day 1883. The earliest programs were varied: historical, literary, and scientific. The St. Augustine Historical Society continues to play an important role in the preservation and interpretation of the unique heritage of the nation's oldest city.  In addition to its museum operations, the Society has built the state's best private collection of documents, maps, photographs and printed sources relating to the history of St. Augustine and early Florida. These collections are accessible to the public at the society's research library, located in the historic Seguí-Kirby Smith House, the birthplace of Confederate general Edmund Kirby-Smith.  Visit for more information.
