THE HIGHWAYMEN LEGACY
The Highwaymen, also referred to as the Florida Highwaymen, are 26 storied,
world-renown African American landscape artists who originated in the City
of Fort Pierce. The Highwaymen Heritage Trail is a self-guided engaging and
educational experience that recognizes these mostly self-taught landscape
artists who have strong local, state, national and international significance.
We cordially invite you to explore this website that is designed to compliment
the Trail’s large kiosks, site markers and significant public art. It is chocked
full of oral histories, professional research, video and dynamic images that
we hope will help convey the plight, fortitude, entrepreneurial spirit and
accomplishments of these late Jim Crow-era African American Florida
Hall of Fame artists from Lincoln Park, an iconic minority neighborhood
in Fort Pierce.
