Starting in 1927, Frank Butler began purchasing land on Anastasia Island southeast of St. Augustine. After World War II, he developed this property into a resort area for African Americans so they could enjoy the beach. Butler Beach was one of the first African American resorts? In this piece I tried to capture the accomplishments of Frank."
