Patrimonio de la Nación
Esta edificación se inició en el siglo XVIII, sustituyendo a una construcción más austera. Durante la intervención francesa, fue residencia temporal de la Emperatriz Carlota Amalia en su paso por Mérida después de desembarcar en el puerto de Sisal camino a la ciudad de México en 1865. Asimismo, en este edificio funcionó la oficina del primer telégrafo Mérida-Sisal, medio que permitió en ese momento establecer la comunicación de la ciudad con otros puntos del mundo.
