Inscription. The Avero family lived on this property from 1712 until 1804 even before the existing building was constructed, with the exception of the British occupation period during 1763-1783. The restoration was undertaken to approximate the character of the building as it existed in 1753-1763 using documentary and archaeological evidence. The restoration process included reconstruction of a missing building section that commemorates its use as a place of worship then called San Pedro Church, led by Father Pedro Camps who sponsored a free school in 1787 with classes taught in Spanish until 1790. The coquina stone blocks, side entry, arcaded loggia, and flat roof are characteristics of prominent First Spanish Period dwellings in St. Augustine.
