Just 3 blocks West of the famous Park Avenue area, Hannibal Square boasts its own collection of great restaurants and wonderful shopping.
This area is filled with history. When the City of Winter Park was founded in 1881, they designated this neighborhood for African American grove and hotel workers to live. As the years went by, people passed away and the area had gotten run down. Starting in 2001 the city has done a fine job of bringing it back to life.
Stay at Thurston House in North Orlando and explore this little bit of our area and its  history.
