Every Room Has a Story

In 1798, Don Andres Ximenez built this fine three-story coquina home for his bride, Juana Pellicer. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of overnight guests sought refuge within our walls from war, sickness, hurricanes, and to start new adventures in the paradise of Florida, just to name a few. For 225 years this home has been owned and operated by generations of enterprising women and continues to still be owned and operated by women today. Learn more about our story…

Upcoming Tours and Events

Everyday Life Tour:

Our classic museum tour gives guests a broad overview of the over 220 years of history at the Ximenez-Fatio House. Beginning in 1798, with the construction of the home during the Second Spanish Period by our first owner, Andres Ximenez, explore how townsfolk lived in Colonial Spanish Florida. As you move into the American Territorial Period beginning in 1821, discover how early American Floridians created a new industry: tourism. Meet our first woman owner who converted the residence into a fine boarding house for visitors. We will tell you about the women who own this building and property, the people who ran it, and the guests who frequented it.
