k16 A BIT OF OLD SPAIN IN THE OLDEST CITY By HAMPTON DUNN ST. AUGUSTINE --Spain still has a direct interest and piece of this ancient city which was discovered bar the Conquistador, Don Pedro Menendez back in 1565. The Spanish Government has contributed to the far reaching restoration program here by erecting Casa del Hidalgo, a true replica of an 18th Century Spanish home. "This is Spanish land," informs the guide at the handsome structure. "You are now a guest of the Spanish government." Actually, Spain invested $350,000 includ ing land acquisition, construction and furnishings. A practical function of the building is to serve as quarters for a Spanish Cultural Center and Tourist Infor mation Office. The two story house museum includes a downstairs area consisting of reception, dining and sitting rooms and a chapel, as well as a separate kitchen, while upstairs quarters are composed of reception and sitting rooms and two bedrooms. (Photo shows hostess checking progress in the kitchen, as a lady in the Hou se of Hidalgo might have done in the early days of this nation's oldest city in a house similar to this one). The St. Augustine restoration program has been boosted by many in high places, including the late President John F. Kennedy, who said: "When I re call how colonial Williamsburg has served so effectively as a symbol of the bond between English speaking peoples on both sides of the Atlantic, I can see how valuable it will be to have a similar symbol of the cultural heritage which came to us from Hispa nic American sources. This can be a most important symbolic bond with our Latin Amer ican neighbors to the South, as well as to Spain, across the ocean."
