Palm Coast in Flagler County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Washington Oaks Historic District
In the 1950s, the Youngs constructed a studio for Mrs. Young’s daughter, Virginia Powis Brown, who was a talented artist. Large skylights on the north side of the house fill the studio with natural light. The caretaker’s daughter, Francis Faye Lopez, would sit and pose for Virginia in her best Sunday dress. Beginning in the 1960s, the Florida Park Service made several additions and alterations to the original structure, and today it serves as a private residence for park staff. (Marker Number 3.)
