Final Lecture to feature Nelmar Terrace & Fullerwood Historic Districts
February 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Dr. Leslee Keys will give the final lecture in our “Putting Down Roots” series on Tuesday, February 11 at 7 pm in the Flagler Room in Ponce Hall of Flagler College. Nelmar Terrace and Fullerwood became the first suburban neighborhoods that grew as a result of the automobile and streetcar, and should be interesting new topics of local history for many. Dr. Keys supplied historical research for the Fullerwood nomination as a National Register Historic District. She is an Assistant Professor in history, and Director of Historic Preservation at Flagler College and serves on the board of trustees of the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation, the St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce’s Historic St. Augustine Area Council, is Flagler College’s representative to the St. Augustine Sister Cities organization, oversees management of the college’s fine and decorative arts collection, and is the faculty representative to the college’s 50th Anniversary celebration.
Our special thanks to The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida for providing the grant money that has enabled the series to bring the historic importance of our neighborhoods to the public. We are hoping to be able to continue this series next year, with lectures the rest of St Augustine’s National Register Historic Districts.
