Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings House And Farm Yard

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings House And Farm Yard

This site was the home of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, the author of many major literary works, including The Yearling, which received the 1939 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, the novels South Moon Under, and Golden Apples, and her memoir, Cross Creek. She was elected to the National Academy of Arts and Letters. The Rawlings house also is a notable example of the Cracker (descendents of pioneer settlers) style of architecture, derived from a variety of influences to suit the climate and available technology of the rural South. Rangers offer guided tours and dress in period attire to evoke the era in which Rawlings lived and wrote.
