Lincolnville Museum & Cultural Center



About Us

The Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center (LMCC) is an African American history museum located in the Lincolnville Historic District of Saint Augustine, FL. The museum is housed in the historic Excelsior School Building, which served as the first public black high school in Saint Johns County in 1925. The LMCC’s mission is to preserve, promote and perpetuate over 450 years of the African American story through the arts, educational programs, lectures, live performances and exhibits.

We offer an annual Living Legends program, that honors local community members who strive to improve the St. Augustine area, as well as an annual jazz series: Lincolnville Jazz at the Excelsior. The museum offers event rental space upstairs.
