Lunch Menu, Hotel Ponce de Leon, St. Augustine, Florida, Feb. 26, 1888
The Ponce de Leon Hotel in St. Augustine, Florida, was built by Henry Morrison Flagler, "a Gilded Age industrialist, railroad pioneer, and partner with John D. Rockefeller in Standard Oil" (as described on Flagler College's Legacy of Innovation page). The luxury hotel opened on January 10, 1888, and this menu dates to February 26 of that year. Today, the hotel building is part of Flagler College.

Gil Wilson 's History of the City of St. Augustine Web site contains additional information regarding the Ponce de Leon Hotel and Osborn Dunlap Seavey, the hotel's manager in 1888.
