Kerouac House, Orlando, Florida.

Jack Kerouac lived in this house as he wrote The Dharma Bums in eleven days and nights... just as his On the Road was making him a literary legend at age thirty-five. Four writers a year receive three-month (seasonal) residencies from the Kerouac Project in Orlando.
