Notes
Survey number HABS FL-122
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-83).
Building/structure dates: 1780 initial construction
Significance: The restored structure that has been entitled the "Don Raimundo [ or Raymundo] de Arrivas House" is recorded in the Tax Rolls of St. Johns County as lot 21, block 12, of the City of St. Augustine. The St. Augustine Historical Restoration and Preservation Commission, a Florida state agency, purchased the property on July 1, 1960, and currently owns the restored historic building and the lot that it is erected upon. At this time the four rooms of the first floor of the house serves as a history and historical restoration museum; the four rooms of the second floor house the business offices of the St. Augustine Historical Restoration and Preservation Commission, and the attic rooms of the third level of the house provide lavatory and storage facilities. The Arrivas House is significant historically because its present architecture includes several different historical and cultural periods of St. Augustine life. The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries appear in the total architectural form of this structure. Similarly, the Spanish, English, and American cultural influences of those two centuries are apparent in the recently restored building. The Arrivas House, while revealing architectural features of its historic residents, also demonstrates the construction techniques and materials that were employed in St. Augustine's building construction traditions of the past. The house therefore presents a plural culture image of St. Augustine's architectural history, which has been strengthened by the historic rehabilitation and preservation endeavors of the St. Augustine Historical Restoration and Preservation Commission.
