Seavey House
Union General's House
St. Augustine Florida
Victorian
This house is located between Memorial Presbyterian Church and the Ponce de Leon Artists Studio.
Originally it was intended for the manager of the Ponce de Leon Hotel -
Osborn Seavey. Later it was
owned by General John Scofield and then General Martin Hardin.

The two-and-a-half story house was built by
James McGuire and Joseph McDonald, the builders of the
Hotel Ponce de Leon.

Hardin's  widow continued to occupy the house until her death in 1939. From the 1940s through the
early 1970s the house was owned by Mrs. Rose Pattie, who rented rooms.

Flagler College acquired the house in the early 1970s. In the spring of 1987 Flagler College celebrated
the conclusion of a year-long $500,000 restoration program for the house. The building was preserved
as an integral part of the Hotel Ponce de Leon complex and as a bridge to the residential neighborhood
beyond.

Its gray concrete veneer and red brick quoins and window surrounds are intended to echo the stylistic
motifs of the adjacent hotel, although the house's steep-pitched, gabled roof is distinctly different from
the gently-sloping barrel tile roof of the hotel. The porch has round columns and Victorian balusters,
with dentils at the roof line.
