  • This house was the reason I became excited about going to Savannah. Make of that what you will. Fans of Flannery O'Connor's work will get a kick out of this brief tour of her childhood home. Her writing was done in the home her family moved later in her life, but the home is a worthwhile time capsule showing how a newly-married couple would have lived during the Depression. If you're a fan of O'Connor, historical homes, or want to see some of SCAD's work in historical restoration, it's totally worth the very modest admission price.
  • The tour was wonderful and the house was beautiful; the restored rooms and original/period furnishings gave a very real sense of the home as it was. More than that, though, the stories of the home that were shared with us were what made the visit special. Even without having been familiar with the author or her work, I enjoyed the visit thoroughly thanks to our very knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. Recommended for any fans of American literature or early-mid 20th century history.
  • A great tour with an incredibly insightful guide. Quick, but well worth the stop.
