“Very interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Very interesting things to see, but staff was not very helpful. We were there several minutes before anyone even acknowledged us. Would like to have been told more about the place, but were left to explore on our own without much info from staff.

“Very friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

The people were very friendly and helpful. The house was beautiful. We learned alot about Tennessee Williams that we didn't know. They even have a small book store.

“Cute little place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Columbus is our current home. Great little town to spend the day in, the Welcome Center is free and a nice place to learn about the local area.

“Beautiful old home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

The welcome center is housed in Tennessee Williams old home so is quite interesting. The house exterior is very colorful and inside loads of information on Tennessee Williams including photos and furnishings. You will also find plenty of information on the area.
