Description

In 1963, the Historic St. Augustine Preservation Board (HSAPB) opened San Agustín Antiguo, a living history museum village in which costumed guides gave tours of restored buildings and demonstrated a variety of arts and crafts typical of the First and Second Spanish Periods, as well as of the British Period. These included blacksmithing, weaving, printing, candle dipping, silversmithing, pottery, baking, and leather making. After the dissolution of the HSAPB in 1997, a smaller version of San Agustín Antiguo (known as Colonial Quarter) was kept in operation by UF Historic St. Augustine, Inc.
