Built as a merchant’s home and place of business in 1798, the coquina stone Ximenez House later became “Miss Fatio’s,” St. Augustine’s most fashionable boarding house. Today, it is a historic house museum, carefully researched and authentically restored to reflect its heyday during Florida’s first tourism boom from the 1830s through the 1850s. Every room tells a unique story about early visitors and how they experienced the Oldest City. Visit the website at www.ximenezfatiohouse.org. The Ximenez-Fatio House is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and the Historic American Buildings Survey. It is a Florida Heritage Landmark and is also recognized as an integral part of the St. Augustine Town Plan National Historic Landmark District. Ximenez-Fatio House has been rated as the #1 attraction in St. Augustine by TripAdvisor and received TripAdvisor’s 2013 and 2014 Certificate of Excellence designation. The Ximenez-Fatio House Museum is owned and operated by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in The State of Florida (NSCDA).
