Fountain of Youth and Spanish Settlement of St. Augustine Kit Keating gave a tour of the site where it is believed Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon landed in America while supposedly searching for the “Fountain of Youth.” This is the same site where Pedro Menendez de Aviles landed in 1565 and began a Spanish settlement, making St. Augustine the oldest continuous European settlement in the United States. Mr. Keating also talked about the impact Spanish settlement had on the Seloy Native Americans already living in the area.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in St. Augustine, Florida, from March 22-26 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
