The Hoyt Building – c1876

Built in late 1876 as a two story building with a ground floor grocery, the Hoyt Building is located along historic Centre Street in downtown Fernandina Beach. It was rebuilt after a minor fire in 1901 adding a third story. It is a vibrant part of this beautiful Victorian seaport town to this day.

Beautiful Victorian details have been preserved into “modern” Fernandina.

    1. Thanks! We are so lucky to be able to call this lovely place home. Our little Victorian Seaport is pretty unique for Florida – “progress” skipped us in the late 19th century and so we are what we were… and that’s pretty cool!
