The Zora Neale Hurston National Museum of Fine Arts (whew) is a small museum located in Eatonville, just north of downtown Orlando. It currently features an exhibit that focuses on viewing the African American middle class through its own lens. It was really cool to see all of the old photos, some ripped and tattered from age. It was really interesting to see Orlando’s history from another perspective.
We also stopped in the Wells’ Built Museum and found the old hotel was alive with rich history. Back when jazz was coming on the scene many famous musicians came to Orlando to perform and stayed at the Wells’ Built including Ella Fitzgerald and more! It was amazing to walk around the museum and think of all the amazingly talented people who walked through there too. I was in awe.
