  • The Ximenez-Fatio House Museum presents "I Lived Here As Well: A Woman's Story" at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings from Thursday, February 3, through Saturday, March 12, 2022.

    At the Ximenez-Fatio House Museum, guests are invited to step into a 223-year-old boarding house and experience firsthand the lives of the people that lived within.

    The museum's latest installment of the "I Lived Here as Well" series, is told through the women who may have spent their entire lives in the boarding house, yet never used the front door. Guests will be introduced to several women whose lives were restricted due to the color of their skin. Some are enslaved, yet some are free. Some have hopes for freedom and some see no hope at all.

    The tour will be open to the public, led by costumed historical actors and last approximately 60 minutes. The program will include stories and accounts not heard during the traditional museum tour, and guests will also have access to the newly opened Servants Hall exhibit.

    Admission: $22. Tickets can be purchased by visiting here.

    When:10 a.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday from Thursday, Feb. 3, through Saturday, March 12, 2022.

    Where: The Ximenez-Fatio House Museum, 28 Cadiz Street, St. Augustine, Florida 32084
