The Georgia home where the Catholic novelist wrote and raised peacocks attracts fans on literary pilgrimage.
The late novelist Flannery O’Connor’s Milledgeville, Georgia, home — the farm called Andalusia, where the author spent the last years of her life writing and raising peacocks — just changed ownership.
If a visit to the farm is on your bucket list, fear not. The new owner, Georgia College and State University, hopes to preserve the estate and make it more accommodating and enriching for visitors.
A trip to O’Connor’s home is a popular literary pilgrimage for those wishing to catch a glimpse of the South as O’Connor, the author known for somewhat disturbing but powerful novels and short stories usually set in the South, experienced it.
