“We often think back to your museum as one of our best experiences with regard to a specific local approach and convincingly implemented techniques of narrative and display. We wanted to thank you for your admirable work in Winter Park.” – Christian Kravagna, Professor of Post-Colonial Studies, Institute for Arts and Cultural Sciences, Academy of Visual Art, Vienna, Austria
“The Heritage Center is certainly a beacon of light that brings dignity to the community, as well as inspiration to all who visit from near and far. I truly appreciate and was moved by the wonderful exhibition of photographs and stories as told by residents from Winter Park’s historic African American community. The Hannibal Square Heritage Center is a destination that I would recommend without reservation to those visiting Florida.” – Martin Luther King III, Atlanta, GA
