Pensacola’s architectural crown for “oldest building” goes to the Quina House Museum. Dating back to 1810, it’s the oldest building in Pensacola still in its original location and also one of the oldest surviving structures in all of Florida.

This house, constructed with local coquina limestone, exemplifies the vernacular French Colonial style. The Quina family, prominent figures in Pensacola’s history, owned and occupied the home for over 200 years.

Today, the Quina House Museum offers a glimpse into early Pensacola life. Visitors can explore the well-preserved rooms furnished with period antiques, offering a captivating journey through centuries of Pensacola’s story.
