St. Augustine's Ximenez-Fatio House Museum, a long-standing fixture of historic Aviles Street south of the plaza, will re-launch their “I Lived Here, As Well” tour. I Lived Here, As Well - A Woman’s Story is told by the women who may have spent their entire lives in this house, yet never used the front door. Guests will be introduced to several women whose lives were restricted due to the color of their skin. Some are enslaved, yet some are free. Some have hopes for freedom and some see no hope at all. For guests who had the opportunity to experience the first “I Lived Here, As Well” series told from an enslaved man’s point of view in Spring of 2021, the new program will continue the story of urban slavery from the woman’s perspective.

The tour is open to the public, led by costumed historical interpreters and will last approximately 60 minutes. The program will include stories and accounts not heard during the traditional museum tour and guests will also have access to the newly opened Servants Hall exhibit. Regularly scheduled performances will take place Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings at 10 a.m. through March 12. 904-829-3575; 20 Aviles Street, St. Augustine www.ximenezfatiohouse.org/ILHAW
