We didn't take an official tour, but we enjoyed the beauty of the exterior of the house and the grounds. A lovely piece of American literary history. I'm glad it's available for the public to see.
The home of William Faulkner is a cool place to see when touring the University of Mississippi or Oxford, Mississippi. I did not have the chance to tour the house itself, but the outside and property is beautiful. The handicap parking is not easily accessible and it is a bit of driving through unpaved roads and bumpy paths to get to the house. It is within walking distance from the Ole Miss. A good history spot of Mississippi.
