Ponce de Leon Hotel, now Flagler College was built in 1888 by the co-founder of Standard Oil Co., Henry Flagler. He first visited the area when his wife's physician suggested that they travel to Florida for a better climate to help her with her tuberculosis. At the time, Florida had limited infrastructure.
Ponce de Leon Hotel went on to be the finest example of Spanish Remaissance architecture and was one of the most exclusive resorts of its day. In 1968 it became the centerpiece to Flagler College and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
This ¾" thick wooden keepsake is handcrafted in the U.S. with colorful details. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. Look for Casper, our mascot black cat, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
