Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park & Museum – US Civil Rights Trail

The Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park & Museum commemorates the Moores’ legacy as pioneers in the fight for civil rights. The complex is on the property of the original Moore family homesite, and the universally accessible facility houses a museum, a 100-seat conference center, a gift shop and a small reference library. The featured exhibit at the museum is a timeline of the Civil Rights Movement, from the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, to the Civil Rights Act of July 2, 1964. Depicted parallel to other events of national renown in American history are the major contributions of Harry and Harriette Moore.

In the conference center, visitors are able to watch educational films for all age groups. The center hosts lectures and cultural events as well, and the library offers access to reference materials relating to people of African descent. On the grounds is a Civil Rights Trail with kiosks providing historical information about the movement. Landscaped with indigenous trees and plants, the grounds are well shaded by large oaks. The park setting is ideal for quiet solitude, picnics, family reunions, concerts and other outdoor activities such as the annual Heritage Freedom 5K Run/Walk.

A bus tour is available that highlights historic locations in Mims that were integral to the Moores’ story. This 25-minute tour covers six miles through Mims and North Titusville, and stops on the circuit include the Moores’ church, the packing house where they sold their orange crops, and the gravesites of the couple and their youngest daughter, Evangeline.
