College Park, Florida
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Located in the College Park district of the City of Orlando, The Jack Kerouac House is a small residential structure where the noted Beat author lived while completing The Dharma Bums. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013, the site is currently owned by The Kerouac Project of Orlando, a non-profit organization enabling writers to live at the residence for three month periods. The digital documentation of the site was selected by UCF undergraduate history student Courtney Verna-Brown as a semester research project during Spring 2020. Courtney conducted a laser scan project of the interior and exterior of the residence with our Leica RTC360 and the Field 360 iPad software and subsequently registered the scans with Cyclone Register 360. Her goal was to develop a complete history of the building and the significance of Kerouac and his writings. Courtney was accepted to participate in UCF’s Showcase of Undergraduate Research Excellence (SURE Awards), however, university closure due to COVID-19 prevented showcase from occurring.
