It was 1905, when Don Federico Aguilar Solís married Mrs. Consuelo Pinzon Carrillo. Both living with his mom, Mrs. Marina Solis Franco widow of Aguilar, in a house of her uncle over 59th Street, in a flat-front house. It was then when Mrs. Martina Solis offered her son a few golden coins, so he could buy the land lot located over the same 59th Street #636, where he started building the home for the Aguilar Pinzon Family.
Around 4 years later, before even finishing the house completely, they decided to move in. The house had in the right side the main bedroom and in the left side the living room. Over the right side two more bedrooms where built, a small one, currently the kitchen, and a bigger one, where the three daughters slept: Bertha, Aida and Helena, together with their father-side grandmother.
Continuing in the right side it was the bathroom, and later the kitchen which was being built little by little, which since the last renewal in 2008 become a guestroom. A little further was the service room, currently more rooms. Mrs. Bertha, the oldest daughter, tells us that the area for the dining room was the well and the weather vane, as they never had a dining room as such. Nowadays, it still keeps the wheather vane right next the swimming pool.
Both original patios are still ekpt, offering our guests the charm of the traditional, with fruit trees to provide shade to the corridors and its columns that decorate and protect this gorgeous property.
Many years later, the house was sold and became a highschool, and to cover the needs of the new school 7 more clasrooms were built in the rear patio. After several years of operation, the school had to close its doors, being on sale one more time. Finally it was purchased and renewed to become a hotel and be able to offer Merida’s visitors a lodging place full of luxury and tradition.
