Tennessee Williams Exhibit
The city of Key West has an incredible literary history, and one of its most celebrated residents was Tennessee Williams, who lived in town from 1941 until his death in 1983. A final draft of his most famous play, A Streetcar Named Desire, was written at La Concha Hotel here in 1947. Williams later bought and moved into a cottage in town. The exhibit, in another lovely yellow cottage, displays movie posters, newspaper articles, photos, first editions, and memorabilia like his vintage typewriters. The free exhibit is manned by friendly volunteers and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
