Statement from Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings | May 21, 2024

Mayor Demings' Seal“I’m disappointed in the committee’s decision.  We’re proud of the application we submitted and the way our community came together with the hope of bringing the Florida Museum of Black History to Eatonville.   If things don’t work out in St. Augustine, we’re still very interested in having the museum here in Orange County.”

– Jerry L. Demings, Orange County Mayor
