We took a day trip to Oxford and stopped and toured the home of William Faulkner, Nobel Prize recipient for literature. There isn't much parking but we found a spot. The way to the house is lined with many very large eastern red cedar trees. The guide tells us that they are not native to the area but were planted after a yellow fever epidemic to help clean the air. Now they are very tall. That was a pleasant entry. I suspect they are fragrant in the spring and summer. We let ourselves in the door and we got a friendly greeting from the hostess paid our $5 each and got an informative broschure. The tour is self-guided. Each room has an explanation written on the outside of it. Any fan of the author would surely enjoy this a lot. I only gave it 3/5 since I have yet to become a fan of Faulkner, but after the visit would like to read one of his books. You do get a feeling that you know the man, after going through his house. All the rooms except the kitchen can be seen from the inside. You have to walk around back to see in the kitchen door. We visited on a sunny warm (79 degrees) early November day and enjoyed the grounds outside as well. The house is owned by the University of Mississippi now but the contents still belong to the Faulkner family. We walked the square first and stopped at the little cabin visitor's center and picked up a map of attractions which made it easy to find the house. You would think they might sell a copy of one of his books there for those that might be interested. This attraction is not commercialized at all.
