17 miles North of Lake City in White Springs, Fl. on the banks of the famous Suwannee River 386-397-1920.
The Stephen Foster State Folk Culture Center fulfills two purposes. Appropriately situated on the Suwannee River, the 247 acre center honors the memory of Foster, whose song " Old Folks at Home" memorialized the picturesque stream. It also serves as a gathering place for those who perpetuate the crafts, music and legends of early and contemporary Floridians.
Dioramas which depict scenes described in some of Stephen Foster’s most famous songs are housed in the Stephen Foster Museum and in the Carillon Tower, along with other exhibits. The Carillon Tower is also home to the world’s largest tubular bell instrument. Guided tours of the Stephen Foster Museum and Carillon Tower exhibits are given daily.
