Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home Foundation
207 East Charlton Street
Savannah, GA 31401
The Home is located just across LaFayette Square from St John the Baptist Cathedral. Like much of historic downtown Savannah, parking at and near the Home consists of metered, on-street public parking spots. Meters must be paid to the city Monday through Saturday, from 9:00am-5:00pm.
Unfortunately, the Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home is not wheelchair accessible, as it includes multiple flights of stairs.
The tour includes both levels of the home that the O’Connor family occupied. Each room has been closely restored to the Depression-era, presenting unique insights into the formative years of one of America’s greatest writers.
While you are here, please consider shopping from our selection of books by and about O’Connor, as well as our t-shirts, mugs, and other special items.
