A National Historic Landmark, the Eudora Welty House was the home of internationally acclaimed author Eudora Welty. She wrote much of her work in this house until she passed away in 2001.
Upon entering, you will find yourself transported back to 1986, when Eudora Welty bequeathed the house to Mississippi along with many of the items inside. Her home is adorned with paintings, linens, furniture, rugs, and photographs, just to name a few of the things you will see on your visit. Visitors are particularly interested in her impressive collection of books, of which there are thousands. She was, not surprisingly, an avid reader of great literature.
Before beginning the tour of her home and the beautiful gardens, visitors will watch a film to give them some important background information. After, they are welcome to wander through the museum and admire the many exhibits.
