Have been thumbing through Traveling Literary America and have read up on Eudora Welty's house and Rowan Oak, the home of William Faulkner. I am glad I did as the book mentions collections of Faulkner works and personal items at the University of Mississippi library. Also there are archives of Welty's photos at another location in Jackson.
I also learned that Faulkner designed the gardens on the east side of the house.
Glancing through the book's entries I am amazed at how many places I have been that have writer's houses or museums that I didn't know about. For instance, I was just in Savannah about a year ago and yet had no idea that Flannery O'Connor's childhood home is there and open to visitors.
I really must start doing my homework before I set out on any more journeys.
