St. Augustine in Saint Johns County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
(An Original House)
After the twenty year British occupation (1763-1783) Antonia was unsuccessful in reclaiming her "Little House of Stone." It was sold at public auction to Juan Sanchez in 1791 during the second Spanish occupation of St. Augustine.
Restoration of this house was begun in 1958 by Mr. and Mrs. Walter Scott Grawbuck, directed by Mr. William Jordan Daniell. The St. Augustine Historical Restoration and Preservation Commission, a Florida State Commission, authenticated this site and house historically and archaeologically in 1962. Its history and building plans are registered in the Library of Congress by the Historical American Building Survey.
