Mr. John Fraser is President of the Fountain of Youth Park and his family is also the owner of the park which has in recent years been determined to be the original settlement of Pedro Menendez in 1565. The Fraser family has owned the park since 1927 and John assumed management of the park from his father in 1972. John and his family also own other historic properties in St. Augustine and John, like his grandfather, is dedicated to historic preservation and the promotion of St. Augustine. John and his family donated some 97,000 artifacts to the Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida that were found on the Fountain of Youth property and continue to allow archeologists from UF to excavate and explore these sites. John has devoted his entire career promoting, marketing and advancing the St. Augustine history and having him join the UFHSA board will bring a unique vision from the private sector perspective. Having Mr. Fraser as a board member and the Fountain of Youth Park as a partner will help advance the mission of UFHSA to protect and preserve the true and rich history of St. Augustine.
