  • Fun piece of history, but unlikely to excite. Beware: your kids will be ready to go after 5 minutes.
  • A wonderful museum about 5 blocks from the house. To see how Faulkner lived and how his rooms looked after his death is like taking a snapshot in time. Really cool.
  • Just as cool as its owner.
