Beluthahatchee Park was the home of Stetson Kennedy, the renounced writer who once worked with Zora Neal Hurston on the Works Progress Administration’s Florida Writers’ Project and was good friends with the folk singer Woody Guthrie.
Kennedy let Woody Guthrie stay on the property and Guthrie finished his autobiography, Seeds of Man, and wrote 80 songs during his stay. Kennedy wrote eight books, many of them at Beluthahatchee Park, including two books exposing the KKK.
Know Before You Go
You can access the park year-round but need to call to schedule a tour inside the buildings. They also have concerts on the property on the second Sunday of every month for $10 that begin at 2 p.m.
