The area known as Flagler County has lived under many flags
We live in an area rich in history.
What is designated as Flagler County today is one of the oldest settled
areas in the United States. Much work has been accomplished by local
historians, groups, and writers to document the rich background of where
Flagler County has a remarkable selection of preserved historical sites
and places to visit. This includes work by the Friends of the
Library of Flagler County who in 2001 began their "Flagler Memories"
project to preserve interviews with our long time residents.
It has been continued by The Flagler County Historical Society, guided by
archivist Mr. Sisco Deen and the many others who contribute to our
