Brittany Martin, Clayton Junkins, Kayleigh Gades, and Meghan Crawford (along with Erik Hendrickson, off camera) present their tour.

Students in Heritage Tourism (HIS440) presented a portion of their Gilded Age Walking Tour on the last day of class. They showed several of the historic hotels as well as the sites of former hotels that did not stand the test of time and development. Their project is designed as a self-guided tour with an introductory brochure that guides users to a website (with mobile platform) for more detail, historic photos, and interactive map. Have a look at their project here.

Thanks to Nick McAuliffe from the St. Augustine Archaeological Society for helping with this project!
