Eatonville: Celebrating 125 Years!

17 Aug

August marks historic Eatonville’s 125th anniversary! Established in 1887, Eatonville is the oldest incorporated African-American municipality in the United States.

A new town archway and streetscape was just unveiled to mark the anniversary.

Eatonville was home to famous writer Zora Neale Hurston.

 

Tomorrow (Saturday) the 125th anniversary celebration continues with an old school basketball game and high school and family reunion events!

Everything kicks off at 1 p.m. and goes until 6 p.m. at the Robert Hungerford Memorial High School Grounds.
