Kirkside

Kirkside was Henry Flagler’s home in St. Augustine. Located on a five acre parcel of Valencia Street just west of Memorial Presbyterian Church, it was completed in 1893 to replace the Flagler suite at the Ponce de Leon Hotel as the family’s winter residence.

The house was demolished in the 1950s and the property sub-divided. All that remains are the Corinthian columns which were used to construct the Kirkside Apartments on Riberia Street.
