DR. PECK HOUSE

Text for Historic Site Marker




The stone walls of this building date from before 1750 and were part of a

house occupied by the Royal Treasurer late in the First Spanish Period.

During the British Period it served for a time as the home of Governor

John Moultrie.

In 1837 Dr. Seth S. Peck purchased the house and rebuilt it, using the old

walls and adding the frame second story. It remained in the Peck family

until willed to the City in 1931, A generous grant from the Flagler

Foundation permitted extensive restoration in 1968.
