Governor’s House Library
Governor’s House Library is managed jointly by UF Historic St. Augustine, Inc., and the UF George A. Smathers Libraries with the mission of preserving and providing access to the historical resources that enhance our understanding and appreciation of St. Augustine’s built heritage. Primarily created by a defunct state agency, the Historic St. Augustine Preservation Board, the collections in the Governor’s House Library document the city’s built environment and provide invaluable historical information about the city and its inhabitants through time.
