  • William Faulkner's Home
  • Don't wait for someone to greet you outside. Front door's open! (via Scoville)
  • Faulkner's stately but spare house. Faulkner's boots are still standing by his bedroom chair. The highlight is Faulkner's writing room, where he outlined his novel "A Fable" on the walls.
  • Very peaceful place.
  • Home of William Faulkner
  • Beautiful home and piece of history! Worth the quick stop if you're in Oxford.
  • The greatest place I have ever visited.
  • Tour William Faulkner's home and bring along a good book to read on the porch if you're so inclined.
  • Entry is $5. Tour is self-guided, but don't be shy about asking questions. The docents are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.
  • Very calm and a nice place to walk around. The inside is your classic home turned museum
