Gram Parson's Derry Down in Winter Haven, Florida.

Gram Parsons' Derry Down

The Derry Down Project began in June 20, 2014, a Main Street Winter Haven, Inc. initiative to restore a teen club/music venue opened for Gram Parsons December 20, 1964. The two-and-a-half-year restoration project was a community labor of love. Local businesses and individuals donated their time and resources to preserve the culturally significant structure that held memories of their youth. Cash donations from Gram Parsons followers from around the world came in to restore his very own venue.
