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 of a writer who could see what others could not. The friendly guide told us the story of...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 enthralled! You will not be disappointed.

This was definitely worth the tour fee! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaged. The family and friends of Flannery O’Connor have been generous in giving us a vivid glimpse into her life. Full of treasures!!

If you are a fan of Flannery O’Conner, this is a pilgrimage in miniature. If not, it’s still an interesting tour of a restored Savannah row home. The restoration takes the home back to its early 20th century condition. It attempts to capture what it...More

As an English major who attended a Southern college (and, thus, read many Southern authors), I was excited to tour Flannery O’Connor’s childhood home. The tour did not disappoint. The tour guide was full of excitement and facts. She clearly loves both her job and...More

Excellent! The hour-long tour was very informative and entertaining. Our guide, Jo, obviously loves her job. She is passionate, yet laid back and friendly. A must for fans of Flannerey O'Conner fans and anyone who appreciates literature, faith, or history.

I'm a really bad literature major and didn't even realize this was here. I was exploring the cathedral (also recommended) and saw it pop up on my map by accident... SO glad I did. Jo was a fantastic docent, geekily and wholly into O'Connor's story...More

The director herself took us through the house, a beautiful and historical experience just for its own sake, let alone attached to the beloved author herself (who didn't like to be thought of as just a "southern author"). Intimate and knowledgeable Flannery immersion - a...More
