The Oldest House (photo1886), St. Augustine postcard
On the back:
“14 St. Francis St., St Augustine, Florida.
The Gonzalez-Alavarez House is the oldest Spanish residence in the area, dating back to the early 1700’s.”
So, is THE OLDEST house or the oldest Spanish residence in the area (and how big of an area?) or the oldest house in Continental United States? Because I think St. Augustine claims to be oldest city the U.S., the oldest house would in the city would possibly be oldest house in the U.S. But, again, maybe not.
Who’s counting anyway?
