The Avero House is a historic house located at 41 St. George Street in St. Augustine, Florida, United States. The building is locally significant as one of 30 remaining houses within the historic district that pre-date 1821.

Description and history

The Avero House is a two-story rectangular block with an open loggia on the southeastern portion of the lot. The walls made are of coquina stone laid in roughly horizontal courses with lime mortar, which are plastered both inside and outside. At the flat roof, there is one coquina masonry chimney with two flues.
Although the house was apparently built around 1712, the first detailed information on its layout does not appear until a map from 1762, which depicts it as having a U-shaped floor plan.
The St. Photios Greek Orthodox National Shrine is dedicated to the first colony of Greek people who came to America in 1768. The Shrine includes the St. Photios Chapel which features Byzantine decorations, and a museum with exhibits about the life of early Greek settlers and the development of the Greek Orthodox Church in America.
It was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on June 13, 1972.
