Lincolnville

This eclectic neighborhood has a rich heritage and many stories to tell.

The neighborhood of Lincolnville, while actually within the boundaries of the Historic District, deserves to be mentioned as a region on its own. Visitors often seek this area for a stop at the St. Augustine Distillery and then return to enjoy the charming neighborhood and to learn about its history.

Since its establishment after the Civil War by freedmen, Lincolnville has lived every phase of America’s racial journey. After 1865, plantation land was subdivided and leased or sold to veterans of the U.S. Colored Troops. The neighborhood soon evolved into one of the largest clusters of Victorian homes in the city and was home to many prominent African American business owners and professionals.

In 1991, the U.S. Department of the Interior listed Lincolnville in the National Register of Historic Places. Now, many of the old houses have historic plaques on signposts near the sidewalk, identifying the former residents and guests who had an important impact on St. Augustine and the country. Visitors can learn more at the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center, pictured here.

Lincolnville is an eclectic neighborhood of homes, businesses, churches, parks, and museums. There, visitors will find comfort in cozy bed and breakfasts, such as The Collector, At Journey’s End, and the Cedar House Inn. Both locals and visitors enjoy dining at Preserved Restaurant and the Blue Hen Cafe. Those seeking a bit of exercise will find that a loop from the Plaza de la Constitucion along the waterfront, out to the chimes at Dr. Robert B. Hayling Freedom Park, will be just a bit over 3 miles.
