About Mary Parkman Peabody

It was front page news around the country on April 1, 1964 when the Governor Endicott Peabody's 72 year old mother, Mary Parkman Peabody, was arrested at the Ponce de Leon Motor Lodge in St. Augustine, Florida for attempting to be served in an integrated group at a racially segregated restaurant. This made Mrs. Peabody a hero to the civil rights movement, and brought the efforts in St. Augustine — the nation's oldest city — to national and international attention.The story of her arrest is told in many books including one by her arrest companions, Hester Campbell, entitled Four for Freedom.
