The tiny enclave of Eatonville is the hometown of the writer Zora Neale Hurston, one of the shining lights of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s. Her namesake museum is a small gallery hosting rotating exhibits of African-American artists from Florida and around the nation. The shows change about every six months. The museum also hosts an annual festival in Hurston’s honor celebrating various aspects of African-American culture.
