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.

Andalusia is an ideal location for group tours, especially for educators who are interested in providing cross-curriculum learning opportunities for their students. In addition to being the home of a major American author, Andalusia is also a historic farm complex with outbuildings relevant to the property's distinction as a dairy farm in the 1950s. Open on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Thursdays until sunset (April - September). For more information, visit Andalusia's website, http://www.andalusiafarm.org, or give us a call at 478-454-4029.
