I'm a really bad literature major and didn't even realize this was here. I was exploring the cathedral (also recommended) and saw it pop up on my map by accident... SO glad I did. Jo was a fantastic docent, geekily and wholly into O'Connor's story...More

The director herself took us through the house, a beautiful and historical experience just for its own sake, let alone attached to the beloved author herself (who didn't like to be thought of as just a "southern author"). Intimate and knowledgeable Flannery immersion - a...More

I've only read one book of Flannery O'Conner's stories, so I wouldn't call myself a superfan, but I enjoyed viewing her childhood home. The docent was a British woman (I don't recall her name), and she was lovely.

I love Flannery O'Connor's writing, but now I will understand it in a new way, having toured every room of her childhood home. Jo gives a great tour, including her impression of the newsreel featuring young Flannery as the girl who taught chickens to walk...More

We took the abbreviated tour at the end of the day. We were only charged half-price. The tour we took gave good insight into the upbringing and formative influences on Flannery O'Connor and her writing. It was really worth it and is one of the...More

Great for book lovers and writers. This is the authors childhood home; not where she wrote. However, the foundation has done their work well and there are lots of great details and original furnishings to create a living picture of the whole family and influences....More
