Latino Heritage in St. Augustine

Explore the history of Latino American heritage in St. Augustine in this exhibit featuring the legacy of Father Varela and his burial at Tolomato Cemetery, the history of the now-defunct Pan-American Center museum, and the remnants of our town's cigar industry. 

We are actively collecting oral histories and stories in the project begun with a grant, Latino Americans: 500 Years of History, from the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
