Ximenez-Fatio House Reenactment
The Ximenez-Fatio House Museum in St. Augustine will serve as the host site for local Girl Scouts who will portray the lives of brave women who operated, worked at or visited the establishment during the early years of Florida’s statehood and tourism industry.
The museum celebrates the historic accomplishments of these extraordinary women as they persevered with their daily chores. The participants will learn about the proper period dress and make their own costume, learn about conversations of the time and understand how women of this time lived. This is where the ordinary became extraordinary at the Ximenez-Fatio House during the period of 1845-1860.
The Ximenez-Fatio House Reenactment event is held annually at the Ximenez-Fatio House Museum in St. Augustine.
Local Girl Scouts will portray the lives of the brave women who operated, worked, or visited this boarding house during the early years of Florida’s statehood and tourism industry.
Girl Scouts apply to be docents for the day at the museum and assume the identity of a brave 19th-century woman who operated, worked at or visited Ximenez-Fatio House. Girls will sew and wear their own costumes, and work as a group to learn about life in St. Augustine in 1845-1860. They will then share that knowledge with fellow Girl Scouts, families and the public during the reenactment event.
