The Town of Eatonville was founded by three Union officers, Captain Josiah Eaton, Captain Lewis Lawrence and another officer who is unknown. Following the Civil War, these men left America to settle in South America but during their voyage they turned back and settled in Florida. To give a little background, at this moment in time there were black in Central Florida who had been brought there by Seminole and Cherokee Indians. The Indians had stolen the black slaves from many states along the coast. Over time, many of the Indians and former slaves that did not move west, stayed in Central Florida.
