The building that has been entitled the --gi house" is
located at 48, 52, or 48 and 52 St. George Street in the city of St, Augustine,
Florida. According to the Tax Rolls of St. Johns County the property is
designated as lot 20, block 12 of the City of St. Augustine. Crawbuck Homes,
Inc., of 5650 Arapohoe Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida, currently own this
historical edifice and the lot that it is constructed upon. At this time

the first two floors of the house serve as a museum of Yesterday's Toys;
the third (attic) floor, which contains three rooms and a bath room, presently
houses the museum's director.
The FEBihouse ,-. ---_ Ti -.:... "il .
L.:ar--.i i --. is significant historically because
its present architecture reveals at least three different historical and
cultural periods; it manifests eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth century
architectural features.' While its coquina masonry indicates the Hispanic
motif, the wood framing evidences an Anglo-American architectural theme.
The entire house thus reflects a current of cultural history through its
changing and renovated architecture.
