For Mr. Newton:

Memo: To Restoration Commission
Copy for Mr, Wolfe
From: Eleanor P. Barnes

In my search for sites that were owned by
important persons:

I am at present doing research on all of TREASURY STREET
as part of my July work for Restoration. Mr. Newton asked
for Bl. "S" and all of Aviles Street as well.

I have covered all of Treasury Street, bqth sides bringing
it through the British Period as well. then I have done the
full Block "P", site of the Perez House on Charlotte Street
and the Espinosa place on the Bay, now called the SNOW property.

A full report is being prepared for Restoration now.

In so doing I researched the properties just across the
street from Bl. "P". This would be today...........
Building housing real estate on Plaza and Charlotte
Abstract Office
Exchange Bank parking lot
Court House
In 1763 this was Block "O"...Beginning from the Plaza it
ran Nos. 198, 199, 200, 201, 202 and the Treasury S3aM,.corner.

No. 198 in 1763 was ONE of the houses in pos-ession of the
Spanish Treasurer, Juan Estevan de Pena. he other house
owned by him or in his posses ion was the house we call the
Old Treasury today on St. George.

So the corner of the Plaza and Charlotte was HOUSE of
Don Juan Estevan de Pena, the Royal Treasurer in 1763.

On the British Map of 1765, Moncrief, Mr. Gordon was living
here. DeBrahm's list of 1771 gives him as ARTHUR GORDON,
the BRITISH ATTORNEY GENERAL! He was in office 1771.
Died in 1778.

During the 2nd Spanish period, after the British left,
this house was called the TREASURY. The other de Pena place
was referred to as the OLD treasury. See Escrituras No. 46,
8/6/1787 for confirmation of use of title "TREASURY" for
this house. (corner of Plaza and Charlotte)

What a wonderful place to restore!
The Spanish Treasurer, the British Attorney General and the
later ROYAL TREASURY itself!
