Flannery O'Connor (1925-1964) was the three-time winner of the O. Henry Award and posthumous winner of the National Book Award for Fiction for The Complete Stories. She also wrote the acclaimed novels The Violent Bear It Away and Wise Blood, which was made into a movie by the legendary director John Huston.
 
Visitors to O'Connor's Childhood Home, one of the few museum houses in the country that is restored to the Depression-era, receive a guided tour that reveals the quiet domestic life of the young Mary Flannery and her family.
 
Guests can view rare books in our Bruckheimer Library. Visitors can shop for unique books and gifts, also wander in the garden where a five-year old O'Connor famously taught a chicken to walk backwards.
 
The Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home also offers a variety of free events throughout the year, including free Sunday lecture series in both the spring and the fall, and the Annual Ursrey Memorial Lecture, which has brought Michael Cunningham, Roxanne Gay, and Jaimy Gordon to Savannah.
