This house museum is dedicated to Savannah’s most respected literary scion. Flannery O’Connor (1925–64), author of Wise Blood (1952) and The Violent Bear It Away (1960), lived in this house from her birth in 1925 to 1938. The interior has been restored to reflect the Depression era, with enthusiastic tour guides relating fascinating stories about the O’Connor family and Mary Flannery’s early life. Though she died tragically young (of complications from lupus), O’Connor is also highly regarded for her short stories, including the collection A Good Man Is Hard to Find (1955). She won the O. Henry Award three times.
