There is a constant desire to balance the issue of development in St Augustine with the preservation of the history that makes the city unique. Kanti Patel, CEO of Jalaram Motels, Inc., chose to address the issue by embracing both. The history of the Hilton Garden Inn, located on Avenida Men6ndez, has been researched and compiled in the report presented here, an undertaking that was made possible through the funding of Mr. Patel. I would like to thank St. Augustine City Archaeologist Carl D. Halbirt for his assistance during this project, for answering any questions I had pertaining to St. Augustine, and also his matchless talent of map interpretation. Additionally I would like to thank Clara Waldhari for editing my report, perusing the full document, and suggesting an order to the content.

The study could not have been completed without the resources at the St.

Augustine Historical Society Research Library. Foremost, the staff and volunteers, who not only were a wealth of information but took an active interest in the project. Through their help and suggestions, I became familiar with the library and all the collections. I would especially like to thank Charles A. Tingley, Leslie Wilson, and Bill Temme for their assistance, encouragement, and for making me feel welcomed while in St Augustine. Also a warm acknowledgement to the personnel and fellow deed researchers at the St Johns County Court House-working there was a pleasure because of those whom I met.

I also have immense gratitude for my family and friends. The love and confidence of my parents and brother have buoyed me countless times, and the unquestioning support and caring of my friends meant more then they can ever know.

Finding Forgotten Memories:
A Comprehensive Historical Examination of Blocks 3 and 4, St. Augustine, Florida


Introduction

As an enduring pillar of St. Augustine, the Monson Motor Lodge has a variety of memories attached to it. To generations of tourists it was a bayfront hotel with a reputation of service, to others a catalyst of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and to some it was a fixture in the landscape of downtown St. Augustine. The Monson was razed in 2003 and today City Blocks 3 and 4 are the site of the new Hilton Garden Inn. The location of the Hilton is in the center of downtown St. Augustine, Florida, in a place long-noted as a commercial hub and hotel area. A historical survey of Blocks 3 and 4 revealed the lesser-known histories of families who made their homes in the area from 1763 until the present.

An archaeological excavation was done at the site prior to and during the demolition of the Monson Motor Lodge as mandated in the City of St. Augustine's archaeological preservation ordinance. This resulted in a proliferation of questions as to who had lived at the site and how they attained a livelihood. To address these questions, an understanding of who lived on the various lots that comprised Blocks 3 and 4 had to be prepared. This allows the archeological interpretation to discriminate between actual individuals not merely time periods, which could be ascertained from the excavation alone.

The blocks are a microcosm of the city and by examining trends within the area a broader understanding of St. Augustine can be obtained. A formidable amount of data was amassed, not all of which can be interpreted in a short report and therefore has been





2


included as appendices. Instead, research focused on residents of the property who exemplify a larger group and reveal and illuminate through their own accounts the historical importance of the area.



History of St. Augustine

The significance St. Augustine as a city is well documented and researched. It is the nation's oldest permanently settled European city. On April 3, 1513, Spaniard Juan Ponce de Le6n landed on the shores of northeast Florida, by legend searching for the fountain of youth, in truth searching for gold and silver. He found neither but left the Spanish flag on the land he named La Florida, as it was the season of Pascua Florida, meaning Feast of Flowers, or the Easter Season.' With this Florida was claimed as a Spanish territory, but not colonized until 1565 when Spanish King Philip II ordered Pedro Menendez de Aviles to the New World.

The order was in response to the French who were attempting to establish a base from which they could raid the Spanish treasure ships. In 1564 the French had established a colony known as Fort Caroline, a struggling outfit that was strengthened by the seven ships and 500 soldiers Jean Ribault brought from France as reinforcement. Ribault was a troubling figure to the Spanish. He attempted to establish a colony two years prior at Port Royal Sound, near present-day Beaufort, South Carolina, that failed. But with his support Fort Caroline seemed to be enduring. King Phillip II realized decisive action had to be taken to protect his interests in the New World, and believing that St. Augustine would be an advantageous site for fortification and defense of Spanish

shipping interests he sent colonizers. Menendez sailed with 19 ships and approximately 1,000 people to San Juan, Puerto Rico. There he regrouped and set sail for Florida.2 On September 8, 1565 Menendez's force of five ships and 800 soldiers and civilians landed on St. Augustine. Ribault learned of the landing and sent ships immediately to attack. The weather was on the Spanish side and the Frenchmen were caught in a storm, dying at sea or upon surrendering to Menendez. Though St. Augustine would remain dependent on Spain for supplies, it was established as a permanent European colony at this point.3

The fledgling city faced many challenges in the hostile New World, which included raids by French and English pirates, sieges during times of war, fires, and epidemics. To combat some challenges the city was defended by a fort, the Castillo de San Marcos, which was erected by the Spanish between 1672 and 1695 and still stands today. The formidable structure, built of coquina stone, was never captured in battle, as attackers would find their cannon balls lodged harmlessly in the fort walls instead of causing them to crumble.4 These raiders, spited by their inability to successfully siege the fort, would set the city on fire, destroying the wooden buildings of the town. To protect the town, the Spanish erected a series of elaborate defensive fortifications that protected land entry into the city throughout the eighteenth century.

St. Augustine did not remain exclusively a Spanish colony, being ceded to the

British in 1763 then back again to the Spanish in1783. Both transfers were in response to global conflicts: the French and Indian War (1756 to 1762) and the American War of Independence (1776 to 1783). The colony remained in Spanish hands until 1821 when it

became a territory of the United States.5 In 1845, Florida was admitted into the United States as the 27th state. Throughout most of its history, St. Augustine has been a "melting pot" where people of various cultures and racial and ethnic heritages interacted, thus resulting in a unique cosmopolitan community.



Monson Motor Lodge

The location of the Hilton Garden Inn is the newest addition to the continuum of urban life on a historically rich piece of property that experienced the growth and set backs of St. Augustine throughout its distinctive history. Probably the two biggest factors that contributed to the property's changing architectural landscape were fires and subsequent urban development.

Fires have periodically changed the map and appearance of St Augustine. While some of these are a result of conflict (e.g., that associated with the 1702 siege of St. Augustine by Carolinian James Moore and his militia of Englishmen and Yamasee Indians) others were accidental. The earliest documented fire was that associated with a region-wide Native American rebellion occurred in 1576.

The fires of 1895 and 1914 are noteworthy due to their affects on Blocks 3 and 4. The fire of 1895 was instrumental in affecting the architecture and growing commercial trend of the area. It started at the Master's Blacksmith Shop on Charlotte Street at 1 o'clock in the afternoon; there was a delay in sounding the alarm, and initially the fire did not seem serious. Soon the fire was beyond control, spreading both north and south on Charlotte Street, then west on Hypolita and Cuna Streets and east to Bay Street, burning three acres and destroying 44 homes, leaving approximately 35 families homeless.

Included in the burnt structures was the old Gibbs house located north of the project area on Bay Street and to the south the Baya house, where the fire was finally contained. The Baya house was one of two houses destroyed that made a livelihood from boarders and other paying guests. The rebuilding of this area affected its character; evolving from residential to increasingly commercial and service.6

On April 2, 1914 a second conflagration engulfed downtown St. Augustine. Blocks 3 and 4 were particularly developed areas at this time, many buildings were constructed of wood and all were in close proximity. Patrolman McCormick noticed smoke pouring from the second story window of the Florida Hotel at one o'clock in the morning. He relayed the news in person to Fire Foreman Rante, who quickly sounded the alarm and began to fight the flames. Minutes later Fire Chief Townsend and Mayor Amos W. Corbett arrived to supervise. The fire company found that its equipment was unable to extinguish the flames and the immediate concern of the fire spreading to engulf the entire downtown area was raised. A problem faced by the fireman was that Charlotte Street was too narrow to provide any advantage in fighting flames and a pump for the fire department was on back order. Regardless of the firemen's best efforts four hotels, a business block, the county courthouse, and many other homes and businesses were lost. Well-known scenes of St. Augustine were altered; Treasury Street was buried under the rubble of fallen buildings that had lined either side. The two houses on Charlotte Street, well-loved by tourists and artists alike for the subject matter, burned to the ground. Despite the damage to property and location of the fire, only one confirmed set of human remains was found. The guests from the four hotels that burned were rescued by firemen and other brave men who were among the bystanders. At the Monson Hotel, Anthony

Monson and Fredrick Young were able to save all the guests and most of the visitors' personal affects, although the Monsons lost almost everything they had to the fire. Fredrick Young, who was the brother of the proprietors of the Monson House, suffered burns on his arms, shoulders and hands from his efforts.7

Within ten days of the fire the Chamber of Commerce passed a resolution

recommending a plan for the city's appearance. The Chamber encouraged an official adoption of "Moorish and Spanish types of architecture, which already distinguish and furnish one of the greatest charms of old St. Augustine."8 Also the city quickly passed a temporary building ordinance requiring improved fireproofing in new buildings. Property owners waited to see what the final ordinance would require regarding style and fire prevention. Many also delayed investment in new structures until the city acquired better fire-fighting equipment. Their hesitance altered the multi-property owner nature of the area; the Monsons used uncertainty to their advantage and rapidly bought up those properties on Blocks 3 and 4 that they did not already own.9

After the fire of 1914, the area became primarily service based, with hotels becoming the dominate feature of the area. The last relative of a Monson to own the hotel that bore the name was Charles E. Young, Jr., the nephew of Anthony V. Monson and Florence Sarah Young Monson. William Faw acquired the hotel from Charles E. Young, Jr. in the spring of 1947. Faw was a native of Piney Flats, Tennessee, and wellestablished in the lodging business in the state. He came to St. Augustine in 1945 with his wife Luba and operated the Bennett Hotel, then buying the Monson and converting it to

the Monson Motor Lodge in 1956.10 In 1974 William Faw sold the Monson to James Brock. Jimmy Brock had been with Faw since 1945 when he got out of the Navy and began working in the linen room of the Bennett Hotel. Faw took an active interest in

Brock's future from the very beginning, advising him on leasing the Bennett Hotel and

trusting him to be the manager for the Monson. At 80 years of age Faw wanted to

retire-the men decided on an amount of money down and so much a month and in

twenty years the Monson would be Brock's. After just a year of payments Faw had a

satisfaction of mortgage drawn up and the two men signed the deed. Brock became the

sole owner of the Monson Motor Lodge. Brock continued the long tradition of excellent

motel service up until 1999 when he ended his 53 years' association with the Monson and

sold the hotel to Kanti Patel.'" Mr. Patel purchased the Monson Motor Lodge, adding to the six hotels he owns in the St Johns County, this marking the first that is located on the Obayfront. 12



Methodology

Between 1763 and 1999 there have been 136 different deed holders for the property that now is comprised of the Hilton Garden Inn. Many people owned the lots for short periods of time, occasionally for merely days, often transferring to family members

for ten dollars, a token price for legality and traditional purposes. Others held on to the

land and became fixtures, being referenced in terms of boundary lines long after they sold

the property or died. Some people never owned property, but rented for numerous years

and are connected in public memory with the site.

Of the 136 individuals who had a share of ownership within the boundaries of Blocks 3 and 4 of the present St. Augustine City Block Map, certain individuals had a larger role in influencing happenings in the city. Through the data collected on property ownership and biographical sketches it became apparent that noteworthy individuals met certain criteria. The criteria for inclusion in the final report are outlined as follows. It should be noted that some individuals not included in the final report are still of importance and are located in the appendix section, and can be referenced by using the index.

Criteria for Inclusion
(a) The individual(s) spent a significant amount of time in the area. This includes
properties that remained in a family for generations, long-term renters, or
individuals who were listed as property owners for approximately ten years or
more;

(b) The individual(s) gained recognition or notoriety. This includes people who
lived in the specific area and made their reputations through other dealings
and also people who were noteworthy because of what they did or owned
within the said property; and

(c) The individual(s) who purchased a multitude of lots and became big
landowners within the area, which influenced progress in the area, thus
altering its use from residential and commercial to service-oriented.


Results

Research revealed that there have been a number of families that have owned or occupied properties in the project area. Some have been influential purely because of their permanence in the area. Others were winter residents, being noted in the social gossip of the era as welcomed visitors returning to escape the cold of the North. Wintering in sunny St. Augustine were Emma B. and William O. Hoffman of Boontown, New Jersey. They had property in the north part of Block 3, lot 2, from November 5,

1869 until as a widow Emma B. Hoffman sold the property to James Renwick on April 28, 1883. Renwick, also a winter resident, was a well-respected New York church builder, having worked on Grace Church on Broadway and St Patrick's Cathedral. While in St. Augustine Renwick designed the city's cathedral bell towers, as well as the Bishop's throne, pulpit and Altar of the Blessed Virgin.13 Other noted winter residents were Lewis and Charlotte Burgess, owning property in Block 4, Lot 4 from April 5, 1902 until they sold it to the Monsons on July 5, 1910.

On occasion property owners kept property in their families for decades and it is these people who probably contributed to the property's archaeological record. The Gomez's, Sanchez's, and Salas's are wonderful examples of families where property was passed down through kinship ties.

Philip and Mary Gomez purchased Block 3, Lot 4 from Kingsley B. Gibbs on

June 17, 1854 for $1,550.14 On April 14, 1869 Philip and Mary sold half the property to knickerbocker Daniel M. Edgar for $1,000.15 Widowed, Mary P. Gomez conveyed the remainder of the lot to her two daughters, Kate and Christina Gomez, for natural love and affection. She died on July 1, 1888 of heart disease, leaving behind six children of prominent social and business positions.16 Why Mary Gomez left the property to Kate and Christina is not clear, but that they alone of the six children remained unmarried leads to the conclusion that their mother was attempting to provide for them. The women received the property on July 16, 1887 but left it in their deceased mother's name for 12

years until they were inclined to sell it.17 Florence Monson bought the lot for $1,400 on July 13, 1899 so ending the Gomez era in the said property and further bolstering the ownership dominance of the Monsons.18

As one of the first families to settle in Florida, the Sanchezes of St Augustine have a rich and prolific history within and out of the city limits. Colonel Francisco X. Sanchez, born in 1736 and died October 31, 1807 at 71, was a wealthy man and significant land owner, which enabled him to act beyond the limits of morality but remain respected. He had a common law wife for almost 20 years, Beatrice Piedra, a free mulatto. With Beatrice he had 8 children, all of whom he recognized and had baptized in the Catholic Church. Counted among their godparents were Sanchez's influential Spanish friends.19 He married Maria del Carmen Hill in December of 1787, he was 51 and she was 17. With Maria he had 11 children; she and the children enjoyed a close relationship with the offspring of Sanchez's first union who served as godparents.20 Sanchez was a planter and a storeowner who had 5 houses in and around the city, 1,000 acres of Plains of Diego, 500 acres on the St. Johns River, 100+ horses and 300 cattle. One of his houses was located in Block 4, Lot 2.21

Known as the Sanchez House the building has a rich history of owners and

tenants. In the First Spanish Period Don Juan de Salas lived in a stone house at this site. It then belonged to the trading firm of Panton, Leslie & Forbes during the British Period and into the Second Spanish Period. The firm dominated the Indian trade in southeast Florida during the British Period. By staying in Florida when the Spanish returned, the 17 Deed Book 2, page 125

firm became even more influential than they had under the British. In the Second Spanish Period William Panton went to Pensacola to supervise the business there, while John Leslie stayed in St. Augustine to manage the East Florida operations. The heirs of Rodriquez Arsian claimed the house on the bayfront when the Spanish returned in 1784, and by 1790 the government declared the house that was occupied by Leslie to be the legitimate property of Arsian. Leslie then bought the property to the north and continued his operations.

In 1793 Francisco Xavier Sanchez made a conditional sale of the property to his wife's nephew, Francisco Xavier Miranda, who evidently used it as rental property. In 1803 Miranda sold two coquina stone houses (one on the bay and one directly behind it on Charlotte Street) to another of his wife's uncles, Bernardino Sanchez. When he died his heirs sold the property in 1827 to Reubin Loring, who mortgaged the property a year later to Samuel Reed, Jr. and soon lost it.22 In 1829 Reed sold it to Augustus Poujoudwho had married Maria Mauricia Sanchez prior to 1820-and the house stayed in the Poujoud family as rental property.23 In 1887 a suit was filed to divide the estate of Augustus Poujoud's widow and this house (known colloquially as the Vedder House) and the one behind it (known as the Sanchez House) became the property of Hortensia Sallas who leased the one on the bayfront to Dr. Vedder.24 When Dr Vedder died in 1899 the St. Augustine Historical Society bought his collection-excluding the live animals-and leased the building that had been his museum for their headquarters. By 1911 the Society had accumulated so many possessions that it also leased the Sanchez House, which stood

behind the Vedder Museum building on Charlotte Street. Both buildings and all the assets were destroyed in the fire of 1914.25

A legendary occupant of the area, noted for his eccentric ways and curious

museum, was Dr. John Vedder. The coquina foundation from the building he leased is still intact, stubbornly weathering the bayfront, fires, and building construction and demolition. Vedder began his long line of disjointed careers as a locomotive engineer, running an engine from Albany to Syracuse, New York. He then became a dentist, then later a taxidermist and opened a curiosity museum and menagerie on the corner of Bay Street and Treasury Lane.26 Although popular with the tourist trade, Vedder had some difficulties with the neighbors, who were less inclined to accept him keeping live wild creatures in his museum. An article in the "St. Augustine Press" on June 18, 1887 reported Miss Minnie Sanchez's surprise when she went to feed her ducks and was startled by a moccasin snake that had escaped from Vedder's museum, located on the lot adjoining. In the same issue it was reported that the City Council ordered Dr. Vedder to remove his menagerie outside the city limits until at least December 1, 1887, in an effort to deal with a complaint by Mrs. J. R. Sanchez about the animals and reptiles escaping and polluting the air.27 Vedder died in 1899-notorious among the locals and leaving behind an extensive collection.

Also in the area was the home of Luciano Herrara, the infamous spy of Charlotte Street. During the years following the Paris Peace of 1763 Spain continually observed British North America. Aiding the Spanish crown were people like Herrara who

remained in St. Augustine when the British took control, he was one of eight Spaniards in St. Augustine who chose this option. Herrara was born in St. Augustine and when he stayed during the British Period he, Jesse Fish and Juan Elegio de la Puente represented the estates with the many Spaniards who fled to Cuba, leaving their family homes and assets behind.28 Already on the fringes of respectable occupations, the Spanish patriot utilized his connections in St. Augustine to observe and report details about the defiant Americans and the actions of the British to Spain. He warned that St. Augustine seemed to be evolving into a key defense position of the British, a concern for the Spanish because of the close proximity of Cuba.29 The Spanish were well aware how close the two places were and utilized it to their advantage, arranging for Cuban fishing vessels to sail the east Florida coast and carry dispatches to and from Herrara. When Florida returned to Spanish possession Herrara was recognized by the crown and continued to live in St. Augustine until his death in 1788.30

By the late 1890s, Anthony V. and Florence S. Monson were predominately the property owners of Blocks 3 and 4. The family originally emigrated from Norway, with the name spelled either Osmondson or Munson, the latter being a spelling occasionally used in deed records. Anthony V. Monson was the last of the six children of Laurenna Leonardi and William Monson. There are strong indications that his nickname was Bossie, a man who operated a small store and was the founder of the Munson Hotel. Anthony had a brother Fritzie, short for Fritchiff, who was a dealer in horses, and a sister

Amelia L. Monson who married Adolphus Pacetti. Anthony married Mary E. Campbell on April 25, 1877 in a Catholic ceremony.31 With Mary's brother, John T. Campbell, Anthony is listed in the Webb's 1889 Directory as having a Boot and Shoe store on Charlotte Street, near Baya Lane. When Mary died on February 14, 1889 Anthony married Florence Sarah Monson at the Guild House at Trinity Church on January 31, 1891.32

Florence Sarah Young was born in 1866 in Borrow-in-Furness, Lancashire,

England, the daughter of the late Captain William Young and Agnes Bowness Young. In 1885 she came with her family to Florida. Six years later Florence and Anthony married. With Florence, Anthony had a daughter, Winnifred L. Monson, born on January 31, 1892 and died in childhood of a fever which lasted two weeks.

Captain Anthony Monson was the proprietor of Yachts and Sail-boats, owning several yachts, The Mamie, The Maria, The Traveller, and The Oceola. In the St. Augustine Record there were advertisements proclaiming that no visit to St Augustine was complete without a jaunt in the harbor on one of Captain Monson's yachts.33

The Monson's, however, are best known for the hotel that bore their name.

Captain Monson and Mrs. Monson established the Monson House on the bayfront. It burned in 1895 and they rebuilt. The second hotel was burned in the fire of 1914, and again rebuilt, this time being billed as fireproof. At this point the hotel adopted for its emblem the phoenix, included in the crest along with the words "Risen from the Ashes." The emblem appeared on the front of the hotel and was used on stationary. During this time Anthony Monson's health was failing and on May 22, 1915 he died of tuberculosis.

He was survived by his wife, Florence S. Monson, Mrs. Helen Peck, his daughter by a former marriage, and by a sister and brother, Mrs. Pacetti and William Monson.34 While Anthony was ill Florence showed her prowess as a businesswoman, taking the burden of responsibility for supervising the construction. She was assisted by her brother Charles Edward Young, who married a woman by the name of Harriet. Together they had a son, Charles E. Young, Jr., born in 1901. Upon Anthony Monson's death, Florence Monson continued to run the hotel, assisted by Charles E. Young. When Florence Monson died in 1920, Charles E. Young and Charles E. Young, Jr., continued to manage the hotel, Charles was the president of the Young Hotel Corporation. In later years Charles E. Young, Jr. also managed the Monson Hotel and was the vice-president of the Young Hotel Corporation under his father, then president in his own right.35

The Monson Hotel stayed a family business for many years. Florence and Charles had a sister, Agnes Winifred Foster, who was married to J. Clifford R. Foster. A brother, William Fredrick Young, completed this generation of the Young family. Though the motive is not clear, William Fredrick Young gave power of attorney to Florence Young on July 1, 1911, giving her the ability to act for him and in his name on all his properties.36 When she died in April 13, 1920 she left $10,000 for benefit of Fredrick William Young. The trust was dependent on two conditions: the sale of the lot and cottage situated on 16 Bay Street and the sale of the property know as the "Old Monson House Lot" upon which the old Monson Hotel stood prior to the fire of 1914. Prior to

death 16 Bay Street was sold but the Old Monson house was not and Florence Monson's will had to be reexamined.

Under the new stipulations a fund of $15,000 would be managed by a trustee who was selected by Fredrick's sisters and brothers. The trustee would invest the money for the benefit and use by Fredrick, who received the interest from the trust and when he died the trust fund reverted to Charles E. Young and Agnes W. Foster or their heirs. In addition he received a third of the net profits accruing from the operation of the Monson Hotel, until the trust sum of $15,000 was reached and received a salary for working at the Monson Hotel. For all these stipulations and $1,000 paid to him by his sister Agnes Winifred Foster and brother Charles Edward Young it was agreed that Fredrick could not place further demands on the estate of Florence Sarah Monson. Despite the prominence of the family, the reason Florence stipulated a protective measure in her Last Will and Testament for Fredrick William Young is unclear.37

Between 1955 and 1956 the Monson Hotel was revived again. William Faw

owned the establishment at this time and the upstart Jimmy Brock saw beyond the quaint but outdated hotel, projecting that business would benefit from a more automobilefriendly motel with a pool. On the north side of the four-story hotel was a rose garden, probably the most expensive rose garden in the city due to the taxes paid on the land. Faw agreed to remove the rose garden in order to put an addition on the hotel and through some dealings with the city was able to close Baya Lane, upon which the addition would be built. They added an 18-room Cabana wing, making the hotel L-shaped. The construction added rooms, moved the lobby, created a restaurant, and made a new front so people could drive up to the door. Through increased business Faw saw the wisdom 37 Deed Book 43, page 292 July 11, 1916- Will enacted





17

of converting to a motel-and he built the pool Brock suggested in 1960 for $10,000. Brock wanted the location to be out front as a marketing ploy, kids would see the pool, the pretty girls swimming there, and want to stay at the motel.38

The 18 rooms funneled business into the rest of the hotel with people staying in

the older part when the other rooms were filled; they soon stopped the tradition of closing the hotel after Easter. Seeing the increased business Faw and Brock hired an architect and debated the idea of building balconies and porches on the old four-story part of the hotel but decided it was cost prohibitive. In the end the men decided to close the hotel and tear it down--to save on expenses Brock helped raze the area. The new motel was a two-story lodge, meshing the 18 motel rooms built in 1956 with the new area.39

That reincarnation of the Monson had to meet the requirements of the newly

established Restoration Commission. This meant it had to resemble historic buildings that had previously been in the area. After some concessions the Commission granted permission for the construction plans. The funding came from the Exchange Bank of St. Augustine; the banker Brock spoke to was H.E. Wolfe, who was the chairman of the Restoration Commission. On March 13, 1962 the construction of 27 additional rooms, a 92-seat restaurant, a 300-seat banquet room, a 45-seat cocktail lounge, gift shop with a street entrance, a pool with a patio, paved parking lot for 51 cars, and 100 additional night parking spots by an arrangement with local merchants was underway.40 The new building would be a two-story design with 27 additional family rooms. The standing

building was rebuilt to include the restaurant, convention room, kitchen, boiler room, storage room and linen room, along with the cocktail lounge and registration lobby.41

To many the Monson Motor Lodge is the incarnation that evokes the most potent memories. In the turbulent 1960s the Monson Motor Lodge gained world recognition. Previously known for its sterling service reputation by all who visited, in the summer months of 1964 the hotel received publicity to which it is connected until this day. Martin Luther King, Jr. came to St. Augustine during the city's 400th year anniversary celebration. The Monson Motor Lodge became a focal point of the Civil Rights demonstrations-it was in a central location, had been newly rebuilt, and most of the out of town reporters had rooms there. All told 239 Civil Rights' protesters were arrested at the Monson during this time period, including the arrest of Martin Luther King, Jr., on the steps of the Monson's restaurant. The exchange between Jimmy Brock and Martin Luther King, Jr., is immortalized in a photograph that captured Mr. Brock pouring muriatic acid into the hotel pool to scare out the five demonstrators. In actuality the bottled contained a pool-cleaning solution, yet the image symbolized the tumultuous race relationships in the South. King's visit to St. Augustine and the events that occurred while he was in the city is credited with having a definitive affect on the passing of the Civil Rights Act on June 2, 1964.42

Always a contentious occurrence, the demolition of the Monson Motor Lodge and the resulting construction of the Hilton Garden Inn have been welcomed by some and ill received by others. The destruction has afforded the city archeologist an opportunity to perform an excavation of the site that otherwise would not have occurred. The double41 St Augustine Record, February 11, 1962

edged sword of this being on one side a greater understanding and new historical knowledge of St Augustine, but conversely the site was altered in such a manner that it cannot be returned to its pre-demolition state and whatever was not discovered has been lost forever. Through a study of the area using property owners as points of reference the path of development of Blocks 3 and 4 can be established.



Conclusion

An in-depth look at the area allows for historical interpretation and greater

understanding of the history of progress and development in downtown St. Augustine. The comprehensive listing of deed holders is found in Appendix A. Information about the individuals can be gotten from the biographical data, which were assembled from a variety of sources including city directories that list locations and professions from the late-i 800s to the recent past. Maps (especially the Sanborne Fire Insurance Maps from 1884 to 1946) also provide a wealth of information related to property owners and the size, configuration, and composition of houses in the project area (Appendixes B and C). In addition, the St. Augustine Historical Society Research Library has an extensive collection on families of St. Augustine and photos of people and locations that were integrated into this report and are presented in Appendixes D, E, and F.

An analytical and all-encompassing examination of specific blocks and lots in St Augustine has not previously been completed for any property in the city. This study for the site of the Hilton Garden Inn has revealed some of the lesser-known history of the area, with the intent of bringing greater understanding of its complex significance to light. Examining historical sites in this manner enables us to see the path of development





20


within the context of who influenced it. Therefore, it is recommended that similar projects to be done for all blocks within the colonial walled city as well as for large and or significant archaeological sites located outside the colonial city or in sensitive areas in Planned Unit Developments.

-also Fredrick receives as salary of bonus for services rendered in connection with the operation of the new Monson Hotel
