1he Poujeud house is located at 10$ and 107 St. George Steet in the
City of St. Augustine, Florida. Aoording to the Tax Rolls of St. Johns
the property Is designated as lota 1 and 2 (subdivision), Blook 9 of the City
of St. Augustine. The two story bhose is currently owned by May r L. Tatow, At this
tima the house coamrises two looar and an atticO the street floor houaea an wehi-
teotural office and an unocupied shop. The unoccupied shop is located in the north
section of the building, while Mi s Lea iells' architectural offices are located in
he south section of the first floor.
The Poujoud house is signift ant historically because its present struo-
tural soadition deplets the early nteteenth century style of architecture. dbeause
the Pujou d house has remained relatively unaltered during its history it offers
an excellent view of nineteenth entry oulture--partioularly the cultural elements
that concern the construction and building efforts of that century.
Uistorioal research indicates that the Poujoud house was toa truited
ft. 1820-30. Before that date the early house maps-i.e., the Juan 4LIxie de

A woodn house was described as resting on or near the present Tatl
lot in 816. Sioe the historic house is a thin walled, oq i aaon bhose,
howevOr, it see5o possible to suggest that the wood house was either destroyed0
or ineorpwrated into the Ulatr maonry structure. Aooording to an arohitestural
