Hell House

In the early days of Lynyrd Skynyrd, long before the release of their first album, band members would gather at an early rehearsal studio, lovingly named by the band as “Hell House” due to the small space and warm temperatures. Located on a farm near Green Cove Springs, the band wrote most of their first two albums on the property and rehearsed there for many years before outgrowing the space.


Adjacent to Peters Creek, Hell House was destroyed by a fire and the original property is now part of Edgewater Landing, a gated community. The property is visible by water. However, the Clay County Archives has a piece of the original slab foundation on display in Green Cove Springs.


Experienced boaters can explore the nearby waterways of Black Creek and the adjacent Peters Creek, both known to be popular spots for Ronnie Van Zant and bandmembers to fish and enjoy the outdoors.
