Eatonville, Florida: The First Black Town
The time was Reconstruction. The Civil War was over, slavery was dead and blacks across the South werelooking forward to prosperity and a better way of life. A number of blacks lived in the white community of Maitland. In 1882, businessman Joseph C. Clarke bought some land from Maitland Mayor Josiah C. Eaton.Clarke began selling lots to black families from Maitland and nearby Orlando and Winter Park. By 1887,though race relations were relatively harmonious, many blacks dreamed of having their own town.On Aug. 15 of that year, 27 registered voters, all black men, met and voted to incorporate. The new townconsisted of 112 acres (the land Clarke bought, plus a 10-acre donated tract) and was called Eatonville inhonor of the original owner. That vote made history: Eatonville was the first incorporated African-Americancommunity in the nation.
