Lincolnville, A Sketchbook Journal of St. Augustine’s Historic Neighborhood
The 2017 2nd Edition includes 20 new paintings, new businesses, “gentrification”, lost landmarks … History told in the ONLY book about this beloved community.
This compelling and beautiful little book charts a fascinating journey through St. Augustine’s most interesting but long-ignored neighborhood, Lincolnville.
The book is a “must” for anyone who wants to explore and understand this colorful historic neighborhood, from its beginnings to its importance to St. Augustine today. Begun by freed black slaves who first called it “Africa”, Lincolnville is filled with Victorian, vernacular and bungalow homes set on wide marshes. The many masterful and sensitive illustrations bring to life the lovely gardens, streets lined with live oaks and historic Civil Rights markers. The depictions of the diverse architecture reveal a true sense of the unique character of Lincolnville and will delight the art lover. Beyond the beguiling paintings and drawings, the early history of this special place is captured in well-researched descriptions. From the early Indian settlement, to the Spanish encampments, the Minorcan orange groves, the Golden Era of Henry Flagler’s hotels, to Martin Luther King’s stay as the Civil Rights Act became law, this special journal is a visual treat and an engaging read.
