Grounds were pretty but not much to see vs any other old house and was not impressed with the staff. Free so worth a walk in

My husband and I were with a tour that brought us here for an outing. This is okay, but not that outstanding. The backyard is mostly shaded, so it's nice to get out of the crowds and sun for awhile in Key West. If you have little time however, make sure to see the Little White House instead.

We were delighted to come across this house tour when walking down Duval Street. It has a sweet little backyard, with some outbuildings toward the rear that contain the cleanest and most pleasant restrooms in Key West. The house is even air conditioned, so it was a very restful break in our day of sightseeing. The docent was very informative... More

We were on a senior tour enjoying historic Key West. We stopped here and enjoyed touring the oldest house. Many antiques graced the house. Volunteers were on hand to provide information and history of the house. It is available for weddings and would make a beautiful scenic setting in the garden. The little house in the rear was the cooks... More

A Key West tradition for 53 years, is to pucker up at noon on March 7. For the Conch Shell Blowing. The contest is held at the Oldest House, 322 Duval st. Admission is free. But you can book the venue: Parties, Weddings, Inc. The garden is beautiful. A couple of staff are on hand to give a history lecture... More

We booked this venue for our wedding. It was perfect. We did not want a beach wedding and was looking for something different. We wanted a venue that would be intimate enough for 30 guests. The garden was perfect. The staff was wonderful! They were very easy to work with and made sure every last detail was taken care of.... More

The oldest house is very convenient, right on Duval Street. This is a part of Key West history and worth a stop. It is easily missed so watch for 322 Duval. The gardens in the rear of the house are lovely.

Along Duval Street there was an indication "Oldest House ..." and so I decided to have a look. Well, what a surprise. The entry was free, there were not a lot of people, in some of the rooms there were some people telling something about the house and its history. Finally there is also a toilet. What asking more?

We stopped by this beautiful old house while walking down Duval street. The house is surrounded by a large yard with lush gardens, which hosts weddings and events. Inside we were warmly greeted by a volunteer who gave us the history on the house, including the family that resided there. It was very interesting to see inside the house and... More
