Bing Rooming House African American Museum

Plant City Bing Rooming House, a National Historical Site anchoring the former Historic Laura Street African American District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, primarily for its role as a domestic hotel for people of color during the period of segregation. The facility, which is located at 205 South Allen Street, now operates as a museum to emphasize the Plant City community’s triumph over segregation. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 9am to 2pm. The Museum is adjacent to Plant City's Downtown, Midtown Development, Wilford Railroad Museum and Plant City Photo Archives & History Center (walkable). We also maintain a listing of 25 historic sites and places of African American Significance within City of Plant City. See the Plant City African American Selfie Tour on our website. The Bing Rooming House Museum is dedicated to collecting and preserving the history of African American culture and lifestyle during this period. The museum strives to accurately interpret, present and preserve Plant City’s African American history from an African American perspective. Displays of artifacts, storyboards, and written documents help both American and international visitors better understand the experiences of African Americans during the segregation era. Please stop by for an experience of Plant City's culture.
