Rowan Oak// William Faulkner’s home // Oxford, MS

{he wrote an entire plot throughout this room!}
{this is where he got the call that he had received the nobel peace prize!} 

This past weekend we made the trek to Oxford, MS to see my sist graduate college from Ole Miss.
We stopped by Rowan Oak, and while I’ve been there many times before, I’m still struck by its quiet beauty.
Rowan Oak is William Faulkner’s incredibly well preserved home.  Everything is original or replicas.  
I am somewhat of a Faulkner lover – he had a way of getting people, me included, completely engulfed in his stories.  His fictitious town was based on Oxford.  When I was working at the Hospital a couple of my patients knew him and would entertain me with strories.  He was quite the character! 
If you find yourself in Oxford – you should definitely check it out.
