Built in 1865 and formerly known as the Hotel La Borde and Hotel Kenwood, the Kenwood Inn is the only remaining hotel structure of its size from what was known as St. Augustine’s Gilded Age. The Gilded Age is the time period between the Civil War and World War I during which the U.S. population and economy grew quickly and many wealthy people lived very fancy lives. During that time, St. Augustine was home to many luxurious hotels and guesthouses, including the famed Ponce de Leon Hotel, which is now Flagler College. Many a famous visitor has walked The Kenwood Inn's halls, including Mr. Henry Flagler himself who considered it to be on of the finest inn of its time.
