A Colonial Tour from TeachersFirst: St. Augustine

First settled in 1565, St. Augustine is generally regarded as the first permanent European settlement in what is now the United States. While Florida did not enter the Union until well after the nation's founding, Spanish, French, and English colonists settled and disputed the area for most of the colonial period. The French arrived in 1562 at Ft. Caroline, only to be pushed out by the Spanish several years later when St. Augustine was founded. The old city and the remains of several coastal forts remain attractions today. The links below will give you more information.
