Description

The Ximinez-Fatio House was built about 1798 by Andres Ximenez, a Spanish storekeeper and citizen of St. Augustine. The house is built of native coquina and reflects both Spanish and English design principles. The separate kitchen, with its brick baking oven, is the only original from this period remaining in St Augustine. Following the death of Andres Ximenez, the building was first purchased by Mrs Margaret Cook and later by Mrs. Sarah Anderson, who both operated it as a boarding house during the turbulent Seminole Wars. Miss Louisa Fatio bought the property in 1855. Recent architectural evidence indicates a major remodeling of the house during her first years of ownership. The result was a spacious two-story boarding house, one of the most prestigious in the city. The house has been restored to depict a fashionable early 19th century inn. The site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973
