My wife and I went back in history at the Dow museum. Being able to go inside of, read the history, see the architecture and artifacts and feel the atmosphere of these houses that some have been standing for 300 years was an unforgettable experience. I will go back to experience this again.

We spent a peasant few hours touring some very old homes. Well behaved leashed dogs are welcome! The antiques were beautiful and well maintained. It was nice to get a glimpse to see how people of the past lived. I would have liked to read more history about the homes, however it was still a nice place to visit. The garden surrounding the homes was quiet and relaxing. Definitely worth seeking out if you like quaint homes and history.

These quaint little houses date back to 1790...amazing. The brick pavers are uneven but the courtyards are intriguing and intimate. Take a good look at the carpenter's house as it sits in the middle of all of these homes and is crooked!! Simply adorable...

5 houses each had a different view of life in 3 different centuries. If you love old houses, this is a treasure trove. The setup is convenient for a house to house look. It is also near some of the other major attractions and it just added to our overall view of the historic significance of Old St Augustine.
