ST. AUGUSTINE RECORD, Friday Afternoon, May 3, 1968

FIRST ANNIVERSARY MARKED- -Thursday marked the first anniversary of the dedication of Hispanic Garden at the corner of St. George and Hypolita Streets, and Mrs. Elizabeth Towers, member of the Restoration Commission, headed up a special celebration, complete with large birthday cake and one candle. Pieces of cake were distributed to passeEsby in that St. George Street area yesterday.

Pictured here cutting the huge cake are from left, Bradley Brewer, acting director of the Restoration Commission, Mrs. Towers, Mrs. Emma Gilman, hostess at the Pan American building, and James Register, Restoration Commission employee.

The Hispanic Garden, dedicated May 2, 1967, by Mrs. Carroll O. Griffin, president of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc., is a symbolic link between the mother country of Spain and her former colonies, the nations of Latin America. The site on which the garden stands first appeared on the Jeffrys Map of 1769.

One of the benefactors of this Hispanic Garden is Mrs. Alfred I. DuPont.
