Eudora Welty House and Garden reviews
Did not know much about Welty, so thought we'd visit and take the tour. Our guide, Jennifer, was very knowledgeable and gave us anew appreciation for the special person that Eudora Welty was.

What a treat! The house has been left much as it was when Ms. Welty lived there. The staff are lovely. A wonderful tribute to a legendary writer.

I’ve lived maybe 20 miles from this National Historic Landmark and have never gone until now. The tours are every 2 hours so check schedule on website. They also have limited space for each tour. There is a store with books and other items to purchase. Entrance is free on the 13th of every month which I didn’t know but happened to go on the 13th. Her awards are displayed in the house with bookstore. The tour guide Sam stated that after she passed they found them in a closet under a stack of books or papers. She never hung any of them. Well, she loved to write and didn’t do it to win prizes. Before the tour you will watch a 20 minute video. Eudora Welty is speaking, sharing and sometimes reading from one of her books. I absolutely love that they give tours of house. The tour guide gave detailed information. You are allowed to take photos but have to stay on the gray carpet. The home is decorated circa 1980. All of Eudora Welty books seem to be laying as she may have left them before passing. There are 3,000 books in her home. 2,000 are at MDAH. She donated the house to MDAH long before passing. Her parents purchased the home in 1925. They wanted to live across the street from Belhaven College. There is so much history in the home and the garden is so beautiful and inviting. I also love the side pitch attached to home. I highly recommended taking the time to visit this site if you are a history and/or garden lover.
A unique museum in the historical Belhaven district, where an author who received a Pulitzer prize and a National writer award from the US president spent most of her life… if you've been to Jackson, Mississippi, you should definitely visit it….
