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.

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

Cody was our fun energetic tour guide. We had no idea who Ms Oconnor was. But Cody explained so much about her, little anecdotes about the house, why some things were placed the way they were that it made it one of the best tours...More
