Lear/Rocheblave House

Exterior of the Lear/Rocheblave House

214 E. Zaragoza St., Pensacola, Florida 32502

The spacious rooms and jig-sawed porches of this two-story Folk Victorian architecture example recall a time when large families made their homes near Historic Pensacola’s Seville Square. Although built for John and Kate Lear, they never lived in the home. Captain Benito Rocheblave owned and lived in the house for many years during the turn-of-the-century. During November and December, the home is decorated for Christmas and special Victorian Holiday Traditions Tours are given of the home, which typically serves as the final stop on the guided tour.
