God rest Flannery O'Connor!

A must if you're from Irish descent! Another great history moment! Loved the knowledge and the history lessons! Nothing to dislike and worth the trip!

This was a delight from beginning to end, overwhelmingly because of the enthusiasm and knowledge of the docent, Jo. You don't need to be a Flannery O'Connor deep expert to enjoy this visit, and to experience the story of a middle class household amidst all the grandeur of the historic district. A joy.

Small, intimate look at her childhood. Makes you want to re- read her stories and novels.Right on Lafayette Square.

This home reminded my of my brownstone in Brooklyn, but with a Southern twist. The tour was fascinating and the air conditioning most welcome on a hot muggy day in May.

Interesting short tour of F O'Connor house where she lived as a girl. Small but informative and interesting to see a modest preserved home instead of the big mansions around.

I had such a fun time visiting Flannery O'Connor's childhood home. I was well-primed to enjoy it, having just finished reading a collection of her stories and walking around Savannah, and I didn't have long before I had to be back at my hotel to get a taxi to the airport. So it seemed like serendipity when I came across... More

I didn't know about her before I went it, but I enjoyed the history her life and walking through the home. It's hard to imagine the life style then compared to now.

Was lucky enough to visit the Flannery O'Connor home during this visit to Savannah. I was expecting a short maybe one or two room tour due to the very "affordable" cost. That was NOT was we received. Toby was our docent and he was awesome! You are invited into the second and third floors. There are many original O'Connor items... More
