Dear Tony:

I am very pleased to inform you that at its
May 5, 1977 meeting, the Bicentennial Commission of
Florida approved the funding of the "Reconstruction
of the Geronimo de Hita House" project.

Since the approved grant of $6,000 is less than
the amount originally requested, we will require a
revised budget indicating how the reduced funds will
be expended. I trust that either a partial phase of
the work can be completed with the $6,000, or it can
be held in trust pending location of additional reve-
nue from another source. Upon receipt of your revised
budget, we will draft an agreement and submit it for
your signature.

The grant award approved at the May 5 meeting is,
of course, contingent upon the availability of grant
monies in the trust fund.

Sincerely,



William R. Adams
Executive Director

PROGRAM NARRATIVE STATEMENT


PART III
BUDGET DATA


San Agustin Antiguo, the outdoor history museum operated by the
Historic St. Augustine Preservation Board, is an outstanding educational
resource, visited last year by 177 school tours. Since attendance by
such groups is increasing steadily, the Board is currently seeking ways
to improve its educational services for school children. It has obtained
a new position fot a Museum Education Programs Specialist, and it is de-
veloping a series of special educational programs concerning daily life
in eighteenth-century Florida. However, it presently lacks facilities
adequate to conduct such programs. The need is for a typical period house
0 nd garden that can be used as settings for school-group:-activities,
allowing the Board to conduct educational programs without interfering
with normal visitation.

The purpose of this grant will be to fund an accurate reconstruction
of a First-Spanish-Period dwelling and its associated cooking shed and
well. Historical and archaeological research for these structures has
already been done by Dr. Overton G. Ganong of the Historic St. Augustine
Preservation Board and by Dr. Kathleen A. Deagan of Florida State University.
The house, a two-cell, common-plan structure typical of the period 1720-
1763, will be built of tabby (oyster-shell concrete) on the original
foundations of the eighteenth-century Geronimo de Hita House. The re-
construction of this historic building obviously relates to the Heritage
theme.

The project'has a number of clear benefits: 1) it will contribute to
*the reconstruction of a portion of the colonial town, 2) it will enhance
the visual environment of San Agustin Antiguo, and 3) most importantly,
it will enable the Board to Undertake an effective educational program.
Through such a program the state's school children will learn about the
realities of life in colonial Florida.

The Board expects to begin the project on February 14, 1977 and to
finish it by June 30, 1977.
