The Moseley House

Constructed between 1888 and 1889, Moseley House is the second oldest remaining structure in Eatonville, and one of two remaining examples of the pre-1900 wood-frame structures typical to the town. The Moseley House has been restored and is furnished with period pieces. The house is directly associated with descendents of two first-generation Eatonville citizens: Joe Clark, Eatonville founder and second mayor, and Mrs. Matilda Clark Moseley, niece of Joseph E. Clark, who was married to Jim Moseley, son of Sam Moseley, Eatonville's fourth mayor. Miz Matilda, or Tillie, as she was known, was Zora Neale Hurston's best childhood girlfriend. Hurston was a frequent visitor at the Moseley house.
