Ponce de Leon Artist Studios
St. Augustine FL
With the opening of the Ponce de Leon Hotel artists were invited to rent studios and create and sell
their works to the public. Today the building is used by the Flagler College art students.  The artists who
painted here include Felix de Crano, Martin Heade, Frank Shapleigh, W. Staples Down and George
Seavey. The studios were active between 1888 and 1909.

Notice the Palm pillars holding up the second story. This is used through several houses in the St.
Augustine to either hold up front porches or as decoration.
