Found it

After a fun afternoon at the Alligator Farm, the magtfplanner crew decided to take a tour of downtown St. Augustine to discover a few of the old structures scattered about. Unfortunately, the pouring rain kept us locked in the geo-mobile so we forded the streets as we made our way around the area. This was the final discovery of the set of 8 we spotted on this trip. The rain has finally stopped, but the kids are passed out hard so it looks like it is about time to head home !

Another easy one to find - seemed like every spire was a benchmark or was next to one in St. Augustine. Found this one on our mini-vacation to St. Augustine.

Yet another one I pass by all the time. I just never knew these were markers until now.

This is the tower on Grace UMC, an interesting church made of coquina.

Sign at the church explaining its history.

The spire of the church appears to be in good condition. The previous descriptions of the location are adequate, and the church is easy to find.

The actual station is the spire on top of the church. My apologies for the power lines in the foreground.
