Author Erskine Caldwell, one of the best selling writers of the early 20th century and a compatriot of Faulkner, Steinbeck, Fitzgerald and Salinger, was born in Moreland and carried this earliest sense of place into his literature. His books, such as "Tobacco Road" and "God's Little Acre," inspired the love of Hollywood, the respect of readers of fine literature, the wrath of those who didn't appreciate his portrayal of poverty-stricken reality in the South, and recently the honor of his hometown. The museum includes books, movie art, U.S. and foreign versions of Caldwell's work and a video presentation. Occasionally, special events will be hosted by the museum, including guest speakers.
