Learned more than I could imagine about Flannery O'Conner. Her beliefs. Her life. Her writing. Worth the visit by wonderfully informed staff.

We had no idea who Flannery O’Connor was and just stumbled upon this house after mass. We were so glad that we did...the tour guide was absolutely FANTASTIC and so knowledgeable. Well worth the time and donation.

The house and its furnishings are very simple and humble. Mr. O'Connor was between situations when he moved his family into the house provided by a close relative. Still, the O'Connors provided for their daughter and nurtured her talent.
