Take this opportunity to walk all over FPAN! Or all over our inscribed brick paver that is, located at the Southeastern corner of the Visitor Information Center in St. Augustine, FL.
Our inscribed brick joins many others wanting to leave their mark during the historic city's 450th anniversary.
They help to compose the red brick patio surrounding the Coquina Ball. This unique ball marked the eastern end of the Old Spanish Trail, the first transcontinental road from St. Augustine to San Diego, CA. The marker was placed in 1928, soon after the road's completion.
The profits from the sale of the bricks help to pay for historic preservation projects in St. Augustine. More information can be found at the Colonial St. Augustine Foundation website.
