Fabisinski-Hayling House-Lincolnville, Florida

This home in the Lincolnville area of St. Augustine houses can tell the stories of segregation and civil rights. After Brown vs. Board of Education, Southern states did whatever they could to maintain segregation. In Florida, the Fabisinski Committee was led by Judge L. L. Fabisinski, who grew up in the house. They made recommendations to the governor on how to maintain segregation without “officially” breaking federal laws.

In 1964, this became the home of Dr. Robert Hayling. A successful dentist, he was considered the main organizer of the St. Augustine Civil Rights Movement.
