About: The Moseley House is located in Eatonville, FL, a town located in Orange County, Florida just 6 miles north of Orlando, FL. The town is known for its historic significance because it is listed in Eatonville’s Historic District in the area of Ethnic Heritage (Black) and Community Planning and Development as the oldest black incorporated and inhabited municipality in the United States.
Even though it has been renovated, it still retains features distinguishing it as an archetype of the houses found in Eatonville at the beginning of the Twentieth Century.
The house, now a Museum, was restored by Zeta Educational Thespian Association, Incorporated (ZETA), a 501 C 3 non-profit organization and Florida State Leadership Conference, (FSLC) Inc. with support from the Florida Department of State, Division of Historical Resources and other community based businesses and organizations.
The House was opened to the public for viewing January 22, 2000. Regular operating hours are the fourth Saturday in each month from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM for visitations, tours, receptions, meetings, programs, and family gatherings. In addition, the house is open when events sponsored by the Town of Eatonville and others are on-going, such as Founder’s Day, Juneteenth Festival, Martin Luther King Celebration, Zora’s Festival and Heritage Day Celebration, to name a few.
