Andalusia is the historic home where American author Flannery O'Connor lived from 1951 until her death from lupus in 1964. This is where she was living when she completed her two novels and two collections of short stories. Andalusia is open to the public Thursday through Sunday from 10am to 5pm. For more information, call 478-454-4029.

Regular visitors to Andalusia will notice that there is more sunlight flooding the front yard. This is because last week we had a number of our venerable oak trees trimmed to insure their ongoing vitality. The work - which took two days - will not only benefit the trees, which we hope will be around for many more years, but also the front lawn. More light should encourage the grass to grow. From an aesthetic standpoint, the work we had done makes the place look more open and airy, more like it was when the O'Connors were living at Andalusia. Look some time at vintage photos of the farm and you will see what I mean.
