AAA Editor Notes
Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home, 207 E. Charlton St. on Lafayette Square, is a four-story house where author Mary Flannery O'Connor's family lived from her birth in 1925 until 1938. The two floors open to the public have been restored to reflect the appearance during the O'Connor occupancy. The bedrooms are furnished with family pieces, and in other parts of the residence are the future author's perambulator; two childhood books; and Kiddie-Koop, a screen-enclosed crib.
Flannery O'Connor's “The Complete Stories” won the National Book Award's fiction category in 1972.
