ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

If you need to search for something online Tuesday, you might get a look into some Central Florida history.

The Orlando Sentinel reports google.com is featuring Zora Neale Hurston on its homepage.

The search engine often changes its homepage logo to match current events or historical events.

Hurston was born on January 7, 1891 and moved to the city of Eatonville in Orange County when she was very young.

Eatonville is one of the first all-black towns formed in the U.S.

Hurston is most famous for her acclaimed novel "Their Eyes Were Watching God," which focuses on the founding of Eatonville and was later made into a feature film.

Town residents celebrate Hurston each year with the "Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities."
