The Eudora Welty House and Garden are on a beautiful tree-lined street near the college. It's nice just walking around there even if you don't go in the house. But Welty is classic American writer and to be able to tour where she lived and...More

It helps to be familiar with Miss Welty's life if you're visiting, but it isn't necessary. The staff adjusts your tour to you. After having read most of Eudora's books/stories/essays 20 years ago, and little since, I had a solo tour. So much came back...More

THE TOUR OF THE MUSEUM AND ADJOINING HOUSE is super. You gain such a real feel for one of America's greatest authors. The house is just as it was when she lived there and the guides are incredibly knowledgeable about the objects, the books, and...More

I have visited the homes of many writers, and Miss Welty's was one of the most educational. The visitor center next door was just the right size, and I was pleased to find so many intact furnishings in her home. I loved the stacks of...More

The house is furnished much as it was when Eudora Welty lived there and feels as if she might be in the next room. Our tour was with the director who is knowledgable and interesting. She shared many incidents that gave us insight into Welty's...More
