Second Spanish Colonial Period, Built 1791, enlarged 1888The house was built as a residence for Gaspar Garcia and Spanish characteristics are still evident including how the building relates to the street edge and the coquina stone building material protected under a stucco finish. Later, a third floor with mansard roof was added thus characterizing the building as Second Empire Style.The building was converted into a boarding house after the death of Colonel Henry Thomas Dummett by daughters Anna and Sara. With the growth of St. Augustine in the 1800s many buildings acquired similar decorative detailing such as turned posts and porch brackets on the balconies.
