"Elizabethtown" The Movie

Elizabethtown Poster"Elizabethtown" was a movie directed by Cameron Crowe starring Kirsten Dunst, Orlando Bloom and Susan Sarandon. Many of the scenes portraying distinctive landmarks were filmed in Elizabethtown. When visiting Elizabethtown be sure to stop by the WQXE Quicksie radio station to see the radio sign, which was used in the film. Unfortunately, we had to replace the "Welcome to Elizabethtown" signs that were used in the movie due to weather damage. Freeman Lake Park hosted a welcome picnic for the crew. Visit the park to recreate the experience of Hollywood all on your own!
