Flagler's Legacy and Legacy Tours were created by a campus group called Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE). SIFE adviser and Executive Director of College Relations Donna DeLorenzo and a group of students saw the potential for a thriving retail business in 1999 when SIFE students opened a small shop in the Rotunda during the summer and started selling a few collegiate souvenirs. They also started charging for guided tours of the College. Their success was so great that the idea for a store in the historic pedestrian shopping district was born. Flagler's Legacy was created with a three-fold objective: to market the College globally, to teach students how to start and run a business and to produce revenue for the College.
Flagler's Legacy opened its doors in April 2000, at the north end of St. George Street in a charming two-story historic building of coquina, stone and aged wooden beams. What started out as a small selection of T-shirts and souvenirs has expanded into a collection of more than 300 custom gifts and souvenirs. Over the years the business has grown to incorporate a second location in the Rotunda, where historical tours of Flagler College area given to over 30,000 guests annually, and an online store.
