Writers Associated with Key West, Florida: #1 Tennessee Williams

1431 Duncan Street, Key West, where Tennessee Williams – born in 1911 in Columbus, Mississippi – lived from 1949 until his death in 1983.

Just a few houses down from Williams' house on Duncan Street, at 1421, is a house still called 'The Rose Tatoo' after Tennessee Williams's 1951 play of the same name, the cinema version of which was filmed here in 1954 and released the following year. Williams took a very enthusiastic interest in the events.
