Pedro Menendez de Aviles founds the city of St. Augustine at the Timucua village of Seloy, located at today’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park. Menendez would remain at this site for nine months before growing hostilities between the Spaniards and the Timucua would lead him to move his fortifications across the river to what is now Anastasia Island.
