Plant City Bing Rooming House Museum


The mission of the Plant City Bing Rooming House is to accurately preserve, interpret and present local African American History.

Janie L. Bing Rooming House

The Bing Rooming House Museum is named after the late Mrs. Janie Wheeler Bing. The structure was built in 1928 as a rooming house to provide overnight accommodations to blacks that visited Plant City. The Seminole Restaurant was later added on the south side of the property in 1931.

We are at the forefront of diversity, thought and content in Plant City.
