The City of St. Augustine has added a sixth neighborhood designated as a National Register Historic District, The Fullerwood Park Residential Historic District which is bordered on the north by Hildreth Drive, the south by Macaris Street, the west by San Marco Avenue and east by Hospital Creek.
The Florida Historical Commission unanimously approved the application with minor revisions and will forward the documents to Washington, D.C., for federal listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
This brings the total number of National Register Historic Districts in St. Augustine to six with one more nomination currently in progress.
Presently the five designated districts are City of St. Augustine...downtown St. Augustine, Model Land Company, Abbott Tract, Lincolnville, North City with Fullerwood Park Residential Historic District number six of this elite group.
The last remaining nomination to be completed is Nelmar Terrace neighborhood located north of May Street.
The City of St. Augustine’s Comprehensive Plan calls for the city to attempt to achieve National Register designation status for neighborhoods, however, Mark Knight, Director of Planning and Building stated, “this is a designation the city would pursue anyway because of our history and our desire to keep the historic nature of the city in the forefront.”
