Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home in Savannah, GA

207 E Charlton St Savannah, GA 31401
Built in 1856, this historic home rests on Lafayette Square and was the birthplace and childhood home of Flannery O'Connor, an American writer and essayist that lived from 1925 to 1964. During her career, O'Connor wrote a total of two novels and thirty-two short stories, as well as reviews and commentaries. Flannery often wrote in a Southern Gothic style, with regional settings and grotesque characters, and her stories typically reflected her Roman-Catholic faith. Today, the house is staffed by volunteers and funded by donations, and is open for exploration to the public, including a parlor level decorated with twin fireplaces, chandeliers, lace curtains and heavy furniture reminiscent of the period in which O'Connor lived.
