  • It is worth touring through this house, which has been very carefully preserved. You see it as it was when Faulkner was alive, and learn details of his life from the artifacts.

  • Fun piece of history, but unlikely to excite. Beware: your kids will be ready to go after 5 minutes.

  • Just as cool as its owner.
