What’s the oldest permanent city in the USA?

in: Politics

Jamestown

St. Augustine, Florida is the oldest permanent city in the United States; the Spanish established the first European settlement there in 1565. St. Augustine was founded 42 years before Jamestown, Virginia, and 55 years before the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts. (ref. Reference.com)

Was your history class as Anglo-centric as mine? I’ve never heard of St. Augustine, the city.
