The eastern wall of First Spanish Fort San Miguel underlies this British kitchen and was documented by archaeologists during sewer line construction under Church Street. The fort wall continues south under the Lear/Rocheblave House, past the McMillan House, ending before Main Street. UWF archaeologists also identified a part of Fort San Miguel's northeast bastion, named Baluarte de Rosario, just north of here.
