  • I've only read one book of Flannery O'Conner's stories, so I wouldn't call myself a superfan, but I enjoyed viewing her childhood home. The docent was a British woman (I don't recall her name), and sh...  more »
  • I love Flannery O'Connor's writing, but now I will understand it in a new way, having toured every room of her childhood home. Jo gives a great tour, including her impression of the newsreel featuring...  more »
  • A definite must do when visiting Savannah. As a local tour guide, I can easily say that this tour was by far one of the best tours I've had in Savannah. Jo, our docent, was fantastic! Very informative...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A great tour with an incredibly insightful guide. Quick, but well worth the stop.
