Frank B. Butler hosted Martin Luther King, Jr. and associates in his motel in 1964 during a widely publicized civil rights visit to St. Augustine. In 1980, the State of Florida turned over management of the park to St. Johns County. The environmentally sensitive dune system is home to the native Anastasia Island Beach Mice and gopher tortoises.
