Built by Henry Flagler, the Alc?zar Hotel opened as a companion to the Ponce de Le?n in 1888. The building, one of the first multi-storied structures in the country constructed with poured concrete, was designed by John M. Carrere and Thomas Hastings who modeled its facade after a Moorish palace in southern Spain. The hotel remained closed from 1932 until publisher O.C. Lightner purchased the building from the Florida East Coast Hotel Company in 1947 and deeded it to the city for use as a museum for his extensive collection of Victorian memorabilia. In 1969, the voters of St. Augustine approved a bond issue to renovate the structure to house the museum and also municipal offices. After remodeling, the building was dedicated as St. Augustine City Hall on April 27, 1973. The Lightner Museum reopened to the public on August 12, 1974.
