Ximenez-Fatio House Museum

History Comes Alive! In 1798, Don Andres Ximenez built this fine three-story home and warehouse of coquina for he and his bride, Juana Pellicer Ximenez. After his death in 1806, the home was purchased by Mrs. Margaret Cook and was operated as a fashionable boarding house for the next three decades. By 1855 Miss Louisa Fatio had purchased the home, expanded it, and ran it for the next 20 years. In 1939 the home was purchased by the NSCDA-FL, restored, and turned into a museum for the public to learn about early tourism in Florida and its women entrepreneurs. The Ximenez-Fatio House Museum has fascinating stories to tell about a little-known period in Florida history. Each room is meticulously interpreted to bring the past to life in a visual and entertaining way. Best of all, through ongoing research and archaeological discoveries, our story continues to unfold.
