Casa de Piedra, in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, is a Spanish Colonial-style home that was built in 1875. It is the only surviving residence of its era in Aguadilla; most similar ones were damaged in the 1918 San Fermín earthquake and eventually demolished.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places of Puerto Rico in 1986.[1]

It was built on stone foundations of an even older building that has been suggested to be the home of Ponce de Leon.[2]
