Fatio House Museum, 20 Aviles Street

Ximenez-Fatio House

Built in 1798 by Andres Ximenez, a Spanish storekeeper, the original portion of the Ximenez-Fatio House includes a coquina house and a detached kitchen used as a general store, tavern, private residence and later, a fine boarding house for military officers, sea captains, dignitaries and families from the north and south, as well as from Canada and Europe.

Today the house stands as one of the best preserved of the three-dozen colonial buildings remaining in St. Augustine. The historic grounds of the museum date to St. Augustine’s original town plan of 1572. Meticulous restoration and furnishings of period decorative arts and historical objects provide the setting for authentic portrayals of territorial life and early statehood in St. Augustine. The museum focuses on the property’s role as a boarding house, representing one of the few socially acceptable business ventures for a 19th century woman.
