9. Project Summary: In the space provided below, briefly describe the project for which funding is requested.
This proposal is being submitted to request funds for the restoration and rehabilitation
of a one-half story Spanish Colonial style structure. The building, which is known as
the Paredes-Dodge House, was constructed between 1803 and 1813 and is located at 54 St.
George Street. It is one of only 35 surviving colonial structures remaining within the
city of St. Augustine.
Presently it is used as a commercial property. However, it is the intention of the
Executive Director to restore this building and interpret it as part of the Spanish
Quarter Museum's living history program. Thus, based on a staff analysis of the property,
work in the following areas needs to be carried out: preliminary research regarding
history, architecture, archaeology, paint analysis; site work; repairs to concrete,
masonry, doors/windows; refinishing the interior, and mechanical and electrical work.

10. Photograph: Attach 3x5 photograph of the principal view of the property. This photograph should be ol

15. Age of property: Indicate date of construction of property and dates of major alterations or additions
(period of significance for archaeological site).
Built between 1803 and 1813
-It is one of only 35 surviving colonial structures

19. Statement of significance: In the space provided below, explain why the property or site is historically,
architecturally or archaeologically significant.
The Paredes-Dodge House, for which SAAFI is seeking funds to restore and rehabilitate,
is significant for its historic, architectural and archaeological values. The building
has strong historic ties and associations; it is located in'the north end of St. George
Street contiguous to the oldest buildings in St. Augustine and, because of its ownership
related to the history of the local Minorcan community. Architecturally it is a good
example of the Spanish Colonial style, of which there are only 35 suth structures re-
maining in the city. It has a number of typical characteristics of this architectural
period: street-line construction; foundation and wall construction using coquina;
rectangular ground plan; double-hung sash windows; and stucco over coquina exterior
finish. As with other properties. owned by SAAFI, an archaeological exploration of this
site would yield valuable data.

x Located in a designated local district
SDesignated as a local landmark
None' of the above

indicate its immediacy.

23. Condition of property: Indicate, by checking the appropriate box, the present condition of the property.

Excellent x Good Fair Poor

List any specific factors or problems which contribute to the present condition of the property:

The property is in good condition, as it has been a rental property and conforms to all
appropriate ordinances. However, in order to.properly interpret the Paredes-Dodge House
as a living history property, circa 1803-1813, numerous changes must be undertaken.
The specific work that will be accomplished through restoration has been outlined
elsewhere in this proposal. Principally, the restoration would encompass substantial
preliminary research, site work, and structural, finishing and metal work.

benefits in several areas. Careful records, including photographs and other document-
ation, will be kept of the historical, architectural and archaeological information un-

the Minorcan community, two aspects that will be developed in the interpretation of the
restored building, which will become part of the Spanish Quarter Museum, expanding its

the economy of the city of St. Augustine. It is estimated that the project will cost
$98,500 to carry out, and the work will be undertaken by local contractors and vendors,
subject to State bidding procedures. Additionally, the project will add to the know-

projects, if the site will not be accessible to the public, estimate the number of persons annually who will be
exposed to the interpretive materials and reports resulting from the project):
As part of the living history program of the Spanish Quarter Museum, the restored
Paredes-Dodge House will benefit from its significant visitor attendance; in 1989-1990
the museum was visited by 85,459 people and school groups'.

32. Benefit to minorities and the handicapped: Describe any direct benefit the project iill have on a specific
ethnic minority population or community, or the handicapped.
The handicapped and the Minorcan community will benefit directly from the restoration

Juan Paredes' connections to the Minorcan community, this aspect of the history of
St. Augustine will be more fully developed and interpreted.
