The Evansville African American Museum is located in one of the nation's first housing projects - Lincoln Gardens - built in 1938 under President Roosevelt's New Deal Program. The community then was known as Baptisttown and was an independent, thriving community with black doctors, lawyers and educators. The EAAM celebrates the struggles, successes and experiences of the African American culture in Evansville throughout the last 70 years. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children.
