Located near the St. Augustine City Gates, the Old School House was built over 200 years ago while Florida was under the rule of Spain. It was constructed of red cedar and cypress and put together with wooden pegs and handmade nails. The schoolmaster and his wife lived upstairs above the small classroom. Behind the house was a detatched kitchen. Several of the cooking utensils used in those days are displayed. In the schoolhouse, related artifacts and copies of the books the pupils studied from are exhibited.
