The Ortega House shows on the 1764 map of Juan Joseph

Elexio de la Puente as number 101. On this map it indicates

that this house and another stone house with a kitchen on

Spanish Street was owned by Nicolas' de Ortega. The house

also appears on the English Moncrief map of 1764.

The house was originally built with only two rooms and a loft.

Later, in the English period, a kitchen and loggia to the

west was added. The Ortega House could have been built as

early as 1740.

The "ReJa" outside and the window seats inside the front

two rooms are typical of the first Spanish Period, or prior

to 1764. The fireplace was apparently installed during the

English Period.
