Today was my third time taking an American Literature class to Andalusia. It improves every year! A great place to learn about Southern literature and O’Connor. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Love it!!

Andalusia is an ideal location for group tours, especially for educators who are interested in providing cross-curriculum learning opportunities for their students. Visitors may start at the Main House for a brief orientation on Flannery O’Connor and her significance (10 minutes). Groups in the house are limited to 25 at a time. In order to tour the house and grounds and also walk the nature trail, groups should plan on a visit lasting between 90 minutes and two hours.
Please complete the following request for group tours. We ask that groups of 10 or more please return this form at least 14 days prior to the visit date. Once we receive your request, we will verify availability and create a group reservation. We will send confirmation to you via e-mail within three days. If we are unable to accommodate your request, we will contact you via telephone and/or e-mail to discuss alternatives for your group. Please note that pre-registration for group tours is required, and that we may not be able to accommodate large groups without pre-registration.
Group Tour Registration
While admission to Andalusia is free, we suggest a $10 donation per person.
Picnics are encouraged in suitable weather; you are welcome you to bring picnics or bagged lunches to eat on the grounds. Keep in mind that we do not currently have sheltered space for large groups. Please be prepared to remove your trash from the grounds.
Groups should, for their safety, stay in the areas where the grass is cut. There is ample space for parking in the field located behind the main house. Buses can drop off children and elderly visitors and turn around in the barn yard.
