  • I planned my trip to Savannah pretty well but finding Flannery O'Connor's Childhood Home was a pleasant surprise! We were traveling with a party of eight, including kids. Fortunately, admission is fre...  more »
  • Flannery O'Connor's childhood home looks quite ordinary -- the modest dwelling of a not-very-well-off Irish-American Catholic family in the 1920s-40s. But this fact highlights the extraordinary talent...  more »
  • Extremely informative, delightful tour. Cody, the vivacious & charming guide could not have been nicer. She was a font of colorful details about Miss O'Connor's life, her family & the home. I was enth...  more »

  • Closed for New Years Day, but I peeked in the windows to get an idea. Beautiful neighborhood, one of the most beautiful spots in the country. Make plans to visit Andalusia in Milledgeville as well! If you are not from Savannah, be careful driving in this area - there are many intersections where cross traffic only has a yield and they don't always yield!
  • Such a wonderful experience. I’m very passionate tour with tons of great details in history. So grateful this place exist celebrating Flannery O’Connor’s life and work.
  • The tour was wonderful. Flannery was hilarious (excentric, serious, cute) as a child and there are pictures to prove it. The house also has a lot of interesting period furniture (a lot of it the original stuff) that people who were not wealthy had in the 1930s. The tour guide also told us what the neighborhood was like at that time. There are good books for sale and the lady we paid for the tour and books gave us free water bottles since it was such a hot day!
  • Jo, our guide, was excited to share Flannery's life story with us. I came away with a new interest in O'Connor and am now looking forward to reading her books!
  • Great tour. Really neat to see and beautiful area.
