Ribera House History

The Ribera House is a reconstructed example of a First Spanish Period (1565-1763) structure. It is unknown when the home was constructed. Artilleryman Juan de Rivera (Ribera) occupied the home until the end of the First Spanish Period. Ribera was a Native American raised in the Spanish mission village of Tolomato near St. Augustine. The original structure was demolished by the British in 1772. The Ribera House was reconstructed by the St. Augustine Restoration Foundation, Inc. in 1964.
