Additional Details:
Built during the Spanish regime in 1795 (or earlier), it first served as a tavern by Patrick Connelly. The hill on which it stands is known as Ellicott's Hill, named in honor of the noted Major Andrew Ellicot who first raised the American Flag in the Lower Mississippi Valley in 1797. Legend: "Treasure is supposed to be buried beneath the house and the floors of the lower rooms have often been found dug up"
