Andalusia is the home of Flannery O'Connor (1925-64), the renowned American author. It is at this farm on Highway 441 North that her creativity thrived. The Flannery O'Connor-Andalusia Foundation recently opened portions of undeveloped property to establish the Outdoor Learning Center. Programs including workshops, lectures and exhibits that explore the natural resources at Andalusia. Learn more about the environmental education here: http://andalusiafarm.org/andalusia/environmental_edu.htm

Andalusia also has some recent additions to the farm – two peahens and a peacock – a staple in O'Connor literature.
