Historic St. Augustine Research Institute

Who We Are

The Historic St. Augustine Research Institute (HSARI) is a collaborative project of Flagler College and the University of Florida, supported by the St. Augustine Foundation, Inc.

Its purpose is to encourage, coordinate and disseminate active academic research related to the history, archaeology and historical architecture of St. Augustine, Florida, and to apply this research in support of historic preservation in the city.

Research associates include scholars from Colleges and Universities involved in ongoing, scholarly research into St. Augustine’s historic heritage, and are committed to making the results of that research available both to historic preservation efforts in the City, and to the interested public.

The Institute maintains links with the many other agencies and organizations in St. Augustine that are committed to the town’s history and historic preservation, and offers centralized information and resources for researchers, students and interested members of the public not based in St. Augustine.
