The area known as  Flagler County has lived under many flags

We live in an area rich in history.  What is designated as Flagler County today is one of the oldest settled areas in the United States.  Much work has been accomplished by local historians, groups, and writers to document the rich background of where we live. Flagler County has a remarkable selection of preserved historical sites and places to visit.  This includes work by the Friends of the Library of Flagler County who in 2001 began their "Flagler Memories" project to preserve interviews with our long time residents.
