Laura Riding Jackson Home
Visit the Florida cracker-style home of renowned poet Laura
Constructed of locally milled Florida pine in
about 1910, LRJ’s home is an example of
Florida’s historic cracker style of vernacular architecture.
The house was bequeathed to the Laura Riding Jackson Foundation where it serves as
a focal point for the study of literature, philosophy and history –
and as an example of a disappearing architectural style and
symbol of an older more environmentally sensitive way of life.
The foundation moved the home in 1994 to its current place
on the grounds of the Environmental Learning Center.
It is presently undergoing a loving and painstaking renovation
to repair damage from hurricanes Frances and Jeanne.
