The history of the Alcazar Hotel

Built in 1887 by railroad magnate Henry Flagler, the Alcazar Hotel was a storied Gilded Age resort hotel in the Spanish Renaissance Revival style. Designed by Carrère and Hastings (who also designed the New York Public Library), it once housed the world’s largest indoor swimming pool, along with Turkish and Russian baths, a gymnasium, and tennis courts. Today, it also houses the St Augustine City Hall, along with the Lightner Museum, which first opened in 1948.
