The Oldest Wooden School House is an integral part of St. Augustine’s history. Originally serving as a British guard house, then purchased by Minorcan carpenter Juan Genopoly in the late 1700’s. Staring in the early 1800’s the main level of the house was used as a schoolhouse to teach Minorcan children. During his lifetime Genopoly had three wives, who lived and died in the house, There is also note of a little girls tragic death in the house. The structure was later used as a tearoom, a retail shop and finally a photography studio, before it was opened as a tourist attraction and museum in the 1930’s.
