Join us for the Historic Lincolnville Walk on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 9:00am. During this hour-long walk of history, Ms. Cora Tyson’s grandson recalls the Civil Rights Movement and African American heritage of this historic neighborhood.
Ms. Tyson was not only a graduate of the Excelsior High School where the Lincolnville Museum calls its home, she was a friend and host of Dr. Martin Luther King and many others who needed a home away from home to strategize and seek comfort during this dark period of St. Augustine’s history.
Mr. McClain is a Trustee of St. Paul’s AME Church and has been actively serving the St. Augustine and Hastings Black community.
Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a refillable water container for the Historic Lincolnville Walk. Restrooms and parking are available at the Museum.
Ticket Price: $25.00 (Walking tour with museum pass)
This is a fundraising event hosted by the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation with support from sponsors. Ticket prices are donations and all proceeds will benefit the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center.
