You can visit and take tours of the oldest house, as well as the oldest school house which is located not far from Castillo de San Marco. While visiting St Augustine, take a tour of Castillo de San Marco (just north of The Bridge of Lions). Make sure to stay for the cannon shooting and weapons demonstration. If you're lucky, you can often catch a glimpse of dolphin playing in the waters nearby.
The Fountain of Youth is a 15 acre historical Site where St. Augustine got started in 1565. There's lots to do and see there. I'd plan a good portion of your day to visit. Make sure to stop in the Planetarium, Timucua Village, see them shoot a cannon, take a walk through the waterfront park section of the site and enjoy the monuments and peacocks that stroll the grounds. You can also drink the legendary waters from the fountain, though I personally found it nasty tasty!
You can visit the St Augustine Lighthouse & Museum. I'd suggest that you allow at least one hour to tour the site and climb the tower Lighthouse.
