    The Hannibal Square Heritage Center is a unique experience relating the history of a community as told by its members. The exhibitions and programs held at the center weave the stories of this proud neighborhood together with African-American history in general, as well as related topics in art, family history and community experience. Visitors to the Heritage Center are moved by the immediate, personal stories of the people of west Winter Park, and by the beautiful and accessible presentation of historical information and artwork. Adults as wll as children can digest the first-person accounts and pictures collected from shoe boxes stored for generations under the beds of the neighbors who share their stories. Ever expanding, The Heritage Collection: Photographs and Oral Historics from West Winter Park  and its permanent home at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center inspire a sense of shared experience and a new passion for what is possible through the blending of historic preservation with the visual arts. The Heritage Center proves free art classes to seniors and youth from the community, and offers programming from Crealdé's curriculum as well as from partnerships with the area's public schools, the University of Centrla Florida Cultural Heritage Alliance, the Orange County Regional History Center, the Winter Park History Museum, the Winter Park Public Library, the Golden Rule Foundation and other not-for-profit organizations. The center also houses visiting exhibitions, cultural events and programs that explore local history, cultural preservation, Southern folklore and the African-American experience.
