A tour of Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

Situated on the banks of the legendary Swanee River, this center honors the memory of American composer Stephen Foster, who wrote "Old Folks at Home," the song that made the river famous. The museum features exhibits about Foster's most famous songs and his music can be heard emanating from the park's 97-bell carillon throughout the day. In Craft Square, visitors can watch demonstrations of quilting, blacksmithing, stain glass making, and other crafts, or visit the gift shop. Hiking, bicycling, canoeing, and wildlife viewing are popular activities here. Miles of trails wind through some of the most scenic areas of North Florida.

Here is a little video about the park that I found on the internet.

It will let you know more about the park.

Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!

Thanks for sharing the super video. We have never been to Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. Yes, I'm ashamed to say that....being born in Florida and all. It is definitely a place we will put on our "to see" list. A good place to escape to while we need to hang close to home for a few months. Thanks!!

What a wonderful place that park looks to be, no doubt you will love staying there. I'd love to visit the museum as well and that carillon sounds so lovely, doesn't it. Wonderful tributes to Stephen Foster! xoxo

Nice looking park - thanks for posting the video. Only problem is now I'll be singing "Way down upon the Swanee River....." in my head for the rest of the night!

All these years and times we've passed that area, we have never stopped. Guess we need to-it looks like a nice stop.
