Absolutely stunning restoration of the oldest house in Key West. Sits near the ocean and worth a visit to the area - would have been spectacular at the time of original construction.

Its an interesting place to wander through, though it doesn't' take long to meander through the rooms or read the old memorabilia. Its free, though they ask for donations and do sell souvenirs as well.
