Literary Landmarks: Zora Neale Hurston house

Zora Neale Hurston Zora Neale Hurston (1901-1960), writer, folklorist, and anthropologist, was a noted black female writer of the mid-20th century. In addition to her four novels, two books of folklore, and an autobiography, Hurston wrote over 50 short stories and essays; her work, viewed by some as controversial, neither romaticized black folk life nor condemned it. Hurston lived in this house while working as teacher and a reporter and columnist for the Fort Pierce Chronicle in the final years of her life.
