Summary

Significance: This block, a typical division of San Juan Antiguo, is composed of eighteen one-, two-, and three-story masonry buildings facing directly onto surrounding streets. Most of these buildings were built during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries as one and two-story single family houses, each with a courtyard or patio. Shops or warehouses occupied ground level spaces with the family housed above. While several of these buildings have been restored, many are in bad repair or have been extensively modified to accommodate small business and multi-family low-income housing.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-20
Survey number: HABS PR-61
Building/structure dates: after 1800 Initial Construction
