This is one of the best writer-museum houses. As you are guided around by one of the docents (ours was Caroline, who knew Ms. Welty by sight, and was most knowledgeable) it is as if Ms. Welty had just stepped out, and loaned you the key, so that you could tour the house. The place is full of books, on shelves, but also on almost every horizontal surface! A variety of Ms. Welty's books in print and on CD are available for purchase in the house where you buy your tickets and view the introductory video before starting the tour. There is also a gorgeous garden, full of camellias blooming in the springtime.
