The Ximenez-Fatio

House Museum

North Florida’s very own, Great American Treasure

In 1798 Andres Ximenez built this two-story house for use as a general store, tavern and a private residence for his family. After Florida became a U.S. territory in 1821, the property was purchased by its first woman owner in 1830 and opened as a fine boarding house. This was the beginning of over half of a century of ownership by all-women entrepreneurs and culminated with the purchase of the home in 1939 by the NSCDA-FL.

For over 222 years, this remarkable structure has been lovingly and professionally maintained incorporating original building materials, meticulous detail and authentic techniques.

Our wonderful House-Museum can only be properly maintained by constant attention and proper diagnosis. This is why we ask for your help as a BFF member! The funds will allow for the continued focus on our investment – The Ximenez-Fatio House Museum!
