Gonzalez - Alvarez House


(The Oldest House)


For more than three centuries this site has been occupied by St. Augustinians. Beginning about 1650, a succession of thatched 

wooden structures were their homes. This coquina stone house was built soon after the English burned St. Augustine in 1702, and 

originally was a one -story rectangle with two rooms. As times changed during the Spanish, British and American occupations, a 

wooden second story, an off-street porch, and other features were added. Preserved by the St. Augustine Historical Society since 

1918, the house became a registered national landmark in 1970.


Sponsored by The St. Johns County Historical Commission In Cooperation With the Department of State
