  • Like stepping back in time. I love history and old houses. The grounds were lovely, I wish that I had packed better shoes and we would have walked the trail that took you to the museum on campus.  more »

  • I absolutely love this place!!! It has so many much memorabilia than a few years ago. I loved listening to Faulkner's Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech on the head phones. Bill was great. It was a wonderful experience!! I do love all things Faulkner & Ole Miss.
  • A MUSEUM WITHOUT A GIFT SHOP!!!! I dare you to ask to buy a t-shirt or poster here!! Great bit of history, beautiful scenery. It's a gem in the Palm Springs of the Bible Belt. Terribly under utilized potential profit generator here!!
  • Really fun hiking trail with a really neat, historic place to visit at the end
  • A fabulously historic location. Great for nature walks, animal walks, or photography.
  • Pretty. Interesting. Lot of reading.
