Extremely engaging tour and guide. Fortunate to have many original pieces of the time. The convertible "kiddie cage, crib, playpen" was the most interesting invention we've seen in a long while

You will enjoy the visit much more if you familiarize yourself with life of Flannery O’Connor. (Google will do.) Try to catch a lecture or reading and enjoy the home in the context of literature. The best visit would be to catch the parade!!! Everybody...More

Flannery O'Connor's childhood home looks quite ordinary -- the modest dwelling of a not-very-well-off Irish-American Catholic family in the 1920s-40s. But this fact highlights the extraordinary talent of a writer who could see what others could not. The friendly guide told us the story of...More

Extremely informative, delightful tour. Cody, the vivacious & charming guide could not have been nicer. She was a font of colorful details about Miss O'Connor's life, her family & the home. I was enthralled! You will not be disappointed.
