Unearthing St. Augustine’s Colonial Heritage

The Unearthing St. Augustine’s Colonial Heritage grant project was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and carried out between 2012-2015. The objective of the project was to digitally preserve a collection of hidden and fragile resources related to colonial St. Augustine, consisting of over 20,000 maps, drawings, photographs and documents. All digital content related to this project is accessible through the University of Florida Digital Collections’ Historic St. Augustine collection. We thank our partners in this grant work: St. Augustine Historical Society, City of St. Augustine, City of St. Augustine Archaeology, Florida International University Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Center, University of Florida Historic St. Augustine, Inc., and the University of Florida Libraries, including the Herschel Shepard Collection (Architecture Archives) and the PK Yonge Library of Florida History.
