This year, Florida Living History’s annual Founding Day heritage event will commemorate the 451st anniversary of the founding of St. Augustine, Florida's colonial capitol and the oldest continuously occupied European city, port and parish in the continental United States. In partnership with the Mission Nombre de Dios, volunteers will re-enact the landing of Don Pedro Menéndez de Avilés on Sept. 8, 1565, on the original site of the "Noble and Loyal City's" founding in September 1565. These anniversary commemorations will be held from 10 a.m.-noon at the Mission Nombre de Dios. The event is free and open to the public.
