ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- One man just bought a city block of historic homes in St. Augustine.
The complex is the former Dow Museum of Historic Places.
Earlier this month, David Corneal purchased the property for $1.7 million. It has 9 historic houses on it.
"Why not? As you get older, the risk becomes less and less," Corneal grinned.
Crews are already working on the site at the corner of Bridge Street and Cordova in downtown St. Augustine. The homes and beautiful gardens are in need of some TLC.
