Andalusia Farm

Andalusia Farm

During her productive years as a writer, noted female writer Flannery O'Connor spent most of her time at Andalusia. There, she routinely wrote every morning until noon and spent her afternoons and evenings tending to her domestic birds or entertaining visitors. The setting of Andalusia, including the ever-present peafowl, figures prominently in her fiction.

The farm complex at Andalusia consists of the Main House, Jack & Louise Hill's House, the Main Barn, an equipment shed, the milk-processing shed, an additional smaller barn, a parking garage (also called the Nail House), a water tower, a small storage house (formerly a well house), a horse stable, a pump house, and three tenant houses.
