Travelers will enjoy a tour to Oxford, Mississippi and Rowan Oak, the historic home of William Faulkner. In 1930, William Faulkner purchased what was then known as “The Bailey Place.” Colonel Robert Sheegog, an Irish immigrant planter from Tennessee built the home in the 1840s. The house was unoccupied for seven years before the Faulkners purchased the home in 1930, and soon after their purchase, William Faulkner optioned the surrounding acreage and settled in with his wife and her two children from a previous marriage. Within a few years, their own daughter was born, and Rowan Oak was the family home of the Faulkners until 1962, the year of William Faulkner’s death. Rowan Oak was Faulkner’s private world, in reality and imagination, and he was fascinated with its history. His writings were inspired by local stories of Indians, runaway slaves, and old colonels. Faulkner’s years spent at Rowan Oak were productive as he set stories and novels to paper, ultimately winning a Nobel Prize in 1949 and the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award in 1954 for A Fable. The day tour scheduled for Friday, October 25th will feature a tour of the Rowan Oak, lunch on the square in Oxford, and transportation. The deadline for registration is Friday, September 27th.
