Andalusia served as the home of famed American author Flannery O'Connor from 1951-1964. First settled in 1814, Andalusia was a cotton plantation and farm until it was purchased by Flannery's uncle Dr. Bernard Cline in 1931. Following a diagnosis of Lupus in 1951, O'Connor moved to Andalusia to live under the care of her mother Regina Cline O'Connor. During the 13 years she lived at Andalusia, she completed the bulk of her literary work, as the farm's environment influenced the setting of many of her writings. Today, Andalusia serves as a museum whose mission is to care for, collect, interpret, and exhibit items that illustrate the history of the site during the time which Flannery O'Connor lived on the property (1951-1964). Andalusia is open for public tours and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
