Interesting to see how they lived in the 1800s in Key West. Property was beautiful. The house was fairly small for how many people lived in it back then. Staff was very friendly.

Visiting the Oldest House was part of the Ghost and Mysteries tour. A good walking tour of many of the historical houses and properties along Eaton Street.

Much of the construction in this area was done by ship builders so it is different from most home construction.

This house on Duval was built in the early 1800's and yes it's still there. The tour is free and there is a docent that spent quite a bit of time with the kids. The house smelled strongly of mold so if you have allergies...More

This is right in the heart of Duval Street. Admission is free. The docent was knowledgeable. The backyard was a refuge on a hot day. We even got a peek at the cistern. If u enjoy historical structures, you should stop in.
