The Hungerford School was established in 1889, modeled after Alabama’s Tuskegee Institute with financial support from Booker T. Washington. The school was named after Dr. Robert Hungerford, a white physician living in Maitland who had been teaching reading and writing to local black men. The Hungerford School was founded by a young couple, Russell and Mary Calhoun; Russell Calhoun was a Tuskegee graduate. After Robert Hungerford died of typhoid fever in 1888, his son gave Calhoun 40 acres for a new school for African Americans.
The school’s purpose was to educate African American boys and girls (through 12th grade), with a curriculum of literacy, vocational, and life skills. Students lived on campus, and were assigned jobs or chores. The school’s campus included a dairy, chicken coops, gardens, classrooms, boy’s and girl’s dormitories, and a manual arts building. Classes were taught in blacksmithing, agriculture, carpentry, dressmaking, cooking, and housekeeping. As the twentieth century progressed, classes in technical subjects such as mechanical drawing and radio were added.
In 1950, the Hungerford School became a public school administered by the Orange County School Board. Today, the school is not in use, but occupies a large parcel of land in Eatonville, just on the east side of I-4.
110 acres total approximately 90 acres of I-4 frontage on Wymore Road (Wymore road tract). 20 acres near Keller Road butting up to Maitland (Keller Road tract). Wymore Road tract incudes Hungerford High school with all buildings and improvements property also has lake front property on two lakes. Keller Road tract is zoned commercial and Hungerford tract is zoned Institutional. Currently, Town of Eatonville has property on lease purchase from Orange County School Board and is completing 3rd appraisal which will help determine price. Accepting detailed Letters of Interest from developers. Please contact Town Hall at (407) 623-8914 for more information.
MAYOR'S WALK AND TALK

Left to Right, Eddie Cole and Rodney Daniels outside Eatonville Town Hall, on Friday, May 25, 2012. Two decades ago, Eatonville resident Eddie Cole organized and led Every Kid Outreach, a youth enrichment program that sought to give Eatonville youth role models and the support they needed to start and maintain careers. One of those youths was Rodney Daniels, who describes Cole as a mentor. Today, the men sit next to each other in big black chairs every two weeks as members of Eatonvilles Town Council. The men are close, and Daniels isn't shy about discussing the positive effect Coles had on his life. (Orlando Sentinel)
