Welcome to the Ximenez-Fatio House Museum

1798 – 2023 Celebrating 225 years of St. Augustine History

“The old houses, built of a kind of stone which is seemingly a pure concretion of small shells, overhang the streets with their wooden balconies; and the gardens between the houses are fenced on the side of the street with high walls of stone. Peeping over these walls you see branches of the pomegranate, and of the orange-tree now fragrant with flowers, and, rising yet higher, the leaning boughs of the fig with its broad luxuriant leaves.” Poet, William Cullen Bryant describing St. Augustine in April 1843.
