Vision Broadens for Flagler Park Museum, Historic Sites by '99


Treen, Dana, The Florida Times Union


PELLICER CREEK -- From the porch of the century-old Princess

Place hunting lodge, apanorama of marsh and bay opens up,

passing time as it has for centuries, hushed and unspoiled.

What can't be seen from this place, where royalty and sportsmen

once vacationed, is an unfolding preservation and development

effort to showcase Florida's natural and agricultural heritage,

its pristine beauty and economic maturation.

What began as an effort by Flagler County citizens to save the

lodge has turned into a project to include the state

agricultural museum, an estuarine research preserve, equestrian

trails, historic sites and may even encompass Marineland, the

"We didn't really know where we were going in 1990," said Jim

spokeswoman who also worked in state tourism, said surveys show

as many as 60 percent of international tourists and 43 million

people in the U.S. consider themselves "eco-tourists."

The department has a new office dedicated to eco-tourism, a

term coined to fit a usually upscale, child-free tourist from

baby-boomers here to Europeans and Japanese.

deal to pay up to 33 cents per $1,000 of taxable property values

to finance an acquisition program.

The target was Princess Place on Pellicer Creek, built by New

England sportsman Henry Cutting in 1887.

Since an initial 435-acre deal in 1993 that included funds from

the state Preservation 2000 fund, more money has flowed from the

state Department of Community Affairs, the St. Johns River Water

Management District, and other public and private interests. …
