The Moores were the first true civil rights activists of the modern civil rights era in the State of Florida. They were before Dr. King, Malcolm X, and Meager Evers. Harry organized the first Brevard County branch of the NAACP in 1934 and became its president. He would later coordinate chapters throughout the state, and in 1941 became President of the Florida Conference of NAACP branches. He fought for three things; equal pay for Black Teachers, Against the Lynching’s that took place in the State of Florida, and for voting rights. The Klansmen bombed their home on Christmas night 12/25/1951, and it was their 25th Wedding Anniversary.

Exhibits

On the premises guests can come and walk the civil rights trail and read about Historical events as they enjoy a brown bag picnic on 12 acres of beautiful foliage and serenity.
