Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Historic State Park

18700 S. County Road 325
Cross Creek, FL 32640

352-466-3672

Visitors to this old Florida homestead can walk back in time to 1930s farm life where Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings lived and worked in the tiny community of Cross Creek. Her cracker style home and farm, where she wrote her Pulitzer prize-winning novel The Yearling and other wonderful works of fiction, has been restored and is preserved as it was when she lived here. The park is open every day and visitors may tour the house with a ranger in period costume from October through July on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 10 and 11 am and at 1, 2, 3, and 4 pm. Picnic facilities, a boat ramp to Orange Lake and a playground are located in the adjacent county park.
