Learn about Water Works building

St. Augustine Water Works building circa 1915

SAINT AUGUSTINE – Ever wonder about or want to see inside the old brick building next to the St. Johns County Main Library and the carousel on San Marco Avenue?  If so, then you have a special opportunity to do just that tomorrow morning.

Saturday, Sept. 29, at 10:30 am, Jenny Wolfe, Historic Preservation Officer for the City of St. Augustine, will offer a free presentation regarding the Waterworks Building that highlights the building’s history, its preservation and its restoration for future use.

The presentation will be at the Library’s Main Branch, 1960 N. Ponce de Leon Blvd. and will be followed by a guided tour of the Waterworks.

Built in 1898 as St. Augustine’s first water pumping station, the city has recently undertaken major construction efforts to stabilize, rehabilitate, and restore the significant historic features of the building, through funding by Florida Bureau of Historic Preservation grants and matching funds provided by the city.

For more information about the Waterworks Building or the presentation at the library, contact Jenny Wolfe at 904.209.4326, or send an email to jwolfe@citystaug.com.
