First Colony: Our Spanish Origins
Opens Oct. 17, 2015

First Colony exhibit logo - smallLong before Jamestown, Spaniards, free and enslaved Africans and Native Americans crafted our country’s first enduring European settlement — St. Augustine, in 1565. Discover the first colony through archaeology, history and the stories of people who lived there in this hands-on, interactive exhibition. These first colonial immigrants created America’s original "melting pot" — a colorful, multicultural society that was new then, but might seem familiar today.

See it now in St. Augustine or visit when the exhibit comes to Gainesville in October.
