What is now referred to as the Moseley House Museum, was once owned by Jim and Matilda Clark Moseley. Matilda, or Miss Tillie as she was affectionately known, was the best friend of Zora Neale Hurston. Zora was a frequent visitor of the Moseley House.

Zora Neale Hurston - author, anthropologist, folklorist, and member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated - grew up in Eatonville, Florida. Eatonville celebrates Zora's life and legacy annually by hosting a Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities.

Constructed in 1888, The Moseley House is the second oldest structure in the town of Eatonville. As of the year of 2000, the house was restored and is currently maintained by the Zeta Educational Thespian Association, Inc. and the Florida State Leadership Conference, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. The location is currently opened as a museum and exhibits early Eatonville memorabilia.
