Stephen Crane, author of The Red Badge of Courage (available as a free e-book at, lived in Jacksonville, but there is not much to see of his life in Jacksonville now.

You are better off visiting Lilian Place in Daytona Beach, which is restored and ready for visitors. He stayed there as a midway point between his dealings with Cuba and his life in Jacksonville. Daytona now hosts a Stephen Crane Festival annually in March.
