Flannery O’Connor lived in this house at 207 East Charlton Street in Savannah from her birth in 1925 until 1938. Visitors to the house museum can see the home as it would have looked when the O’Connor family lived there. The Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home also offers a variety of free events throughout the year, including free Sunday lecture series in both the spring and the fall, and the Annual Ursrey Memorial Lecture, which has brought Michael Cunningham, Allan Gurganus, and Jaimy Gordon to Savannah.
