Built during the first Spanish Period, the Father O'Reilly House Museum is one of the oldest structures in St. Augustine -- and situated in the oldest continuously settled neighborhood. Constructed in 1691, and made of tabby and coquina, the building was purchased by Father Miguel O'Reilly in 1785. Father Miguel, an Irish priest in the service of the Spanish crown, made this house a place of spirituality and education, preserving the old values.
