The People of America


Starke, Fl – I learned a little about Starke, Florida from Joe Gordon, who was retired after working for a nearby prison for many years.

 Joe said the people of Starke take their religion seriously, attending church three times a week – on Sunday morning, on Sunday evening and again on Wednesday or Thursday evenings.

Several movies have been produced in or around Starke.

The Demi Moore film, “G.I. Jane” was filmed at Camp Blanding, east of Starke; “Tigerland” starring Colin Farrell was filmed here; as was the film “Basic” with John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson. The film “What’s Love Got to do with it” starring Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne used Starke as its location.
