This old schoolhouse has defied the elements for over 300 years. With a lot of luck, coupled with decay resistant wood used in
construction (red cedar and cypress), this historic building has endured harsh conditions in the seacoast town of St.
Augustinefor over three centuries. Old construction techniques, including wooden peg fasteners, make it an
interesting piece of Florida history. It is fitting that the oldest European city in the United States, established in 1565,
holds the oldest schoolhouse.
