The History of Lincolnville Museum & Cultural Center Continue the Journey
Segregated Black schools occupied the current site, alternately named “School #2” or “Colored School”. 1925
Lincolnville residents saw the completion of a new school, all masonry and coquina, named "Excelsior" and became Lincolnville's educational and cultural hub for more than four decades. 1968
Excelsior school closed and the building reverted to government offices for three decades before being listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. 2005
Friends of Lincolnville, a non-profit, assumed responsibility for the building in 2005 and is returning Excelsior to a place of prominence, as the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center, a repository for African American history and culture in northeast Florida.
