Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Historic Park [FL]

Visitors to this Florida homestead can walk back in time to 1930s farm life. Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings lived and worked in the tiny community of Cross Creek. Her cracker-style home and farm, where she lived for 25 years and wrote her Pulitzer prize-winning novel The Yearling, has been restored and is preserved as it was when she lived here.

A second website for the site, maintained by the Friends of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Farm, can be found here.

The park offers tours, exhibits, and occasional recreational and educational events.
