From one of our Friends of Andalusia:
For a writer like O’Connor, who assigned so much value to the concrete particulars of place, the physical reality of home is crucial to a full understanding of the writing. The Andalusia Foundation serves an indispensable function by preserving the O’Connor house and farm and sharing them with new generations of readers.

Our general approach to tours at Andalusia is to provide a short introduction, and then we allow our visitors to guide their experience based on their own level of interest and knowledge of O’Connor and her work. Tours of the areas outside the main house are entirely self-guided. If you would like to schedule a tour for a group, please fill out the group tour registration form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or to PO Box 947, Milledgeville, GA 31059.
Andalusia is an ideal location for group tours, especially for educators who are interested in providing cross-curriculum learning opportunities for their students. In addition to being the home of a major American author, Andalusia is also a historic farm complex with outbuildings relevant to the property’s distinction as a dairy farm in the 1950s. Find out more about what to see at the farm.
