At the Ximenez-Fatio House Museum, guests are invited to step into a 224-year-old boarding house and experience, firsthand, the stories of the people that lived within it. the “I Lived Here, As Well” program is a series of interpretive Black History tours in which the ‘tour guides’ are actors who portray several characters from St. Augustine’s past. Some of these characters are people who we know lived in the house, like Louisa Williams, a previously enslaved woman who was freed by Union troops in St. Augustine in 1862. Other characters were crafter to represent enslaved and freed people who were documented as working in this house, but whose names were never recorded.
“I Lived Here, As Well – Together” will run on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings at 10:00am from Thursday, January 19th through Saturday February 25th, 2023. The tour is open to the public, led by costumed historical actors, and lasts approximately 60 minutes. Admission is $22.00 per person and ticket sales will open on December 13th, 2022.
