(An Original House)Fernando Rodriguez, sergeant in the Spanish Army at the Castillo de San Marcos Fort, built his house on this site during the first Spanish occupation (1565-1763). In 1760, he commissioned Juan Perez, Master Builder, to add the northeast coquina room to his earlier wooden house. Antonia Avero inherited this property from Rodriguez in 1762 and fled to Cuba just before the British occupation of St. Augustine.
