The Lincolnville Historic District is St. Augustine’s most prominent historically black neighborhood and is associated with many significant events in the city’s rich African American history. Founded in 1866 by former slaves, the district remained relatively static until the late 19th century. Segregationist practices that swept the South between 1890 and 1910 spurred the growth of black owned and operated commercial enterprises. Washington Street in the district became the heart of the black business community. Today, it is home to the main fishing fleets and boat yards, home styles that range from beautiful Victorian architectural style homes which date back to the early 1900s to cottages and modern contemporary style homes, churches, art galleries, and pretty tree lined streets. It is an eclectic neighborhood!
