Everyday Life Tour
Our Everyday Life Tour gives guests an overview of 220 years of history at the Ximenez-Fatio House. Beginning in 1798, with the construction of the home during the Second Spanish Period by the first owner, Andres Ximenez, explore how residents lived during this period in St. Augustine. 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. You will learn about the women who own this building and property, the people who ran it, and the guests who frequented it.
