The Oldest Wooden School House in the United States is a small building constructed over 300 years ago, originally serving as a bachelor's home. When owner Juan Genoply married and the house became a school, he and his wife moved their living quarters to the second story, and the small room at ground level was the classroom. The kitchen was in a separate building, as was the custom of the day.
Take a self-guided tour to see animatronic figures in period dress, with the schoolmaster and children talking about a typical school day. Textbooks and other school artifacts are on display. Tour the kitchen and outhouse buildings, old well, tropical garden, patio, and grounds. See an ancient pecan tree, authenticated to be over 250 years old and still bearing nuts! Visit to find out why the building is wrapped with a heavy chain attached to an anchor!
This attraction is open every day except Christmas from 9am-5pm and is located near the Old City Gates at 14 St. George Street, St. Augustine, FL
