Visit this historic Greek Revival-style home in northern Mississippi.

This historic home is where William Faulkner found inspiration for much of his writing. William Faulkner was born in New Albany, Mississippi, in the late 1800s and slowly gained recognition as a famous American writer. At one point during his career, he published a book every year and eventually won a Nobel Prize in literature. The Faulkner family occupied this home from 1930 to 1962. Inside the house, you will see the dining room, library, parlor, office, kitchen, and various bedrooms complete with period furnishings. 

Tours of Rowan Oak are available Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 4 pm. The public is welcome to explore the grounds anytime between dawn and dusk. The grounds of Rowan Oak feature cedar trees and several restored buildings such as the servant's quarters, barn, stable, smokehouse, and gardens. Feel free to walk along the Bailey Woods Trail before you go. It is a lovely wooded trail that leads directly north to the University Museum. Rowan Oak is a great historic home to visit if you're traveling through northern Mississippi.
