The house itself has been restored to what it looked like at the time of Faulkner's death. In fact, one room still has his hand scribbled notes for book visible on the wall. The name of the property Rowan Oak refers to the large oak tree which sits directly in front of the front door and would be hard to miss for anyone visiting here.
If you're interested, there are also several walking trails that lead through "Faulkner's Woods" behind the home and the hikes probably last a minimum of an hour.
Wherever you turn in this quaint southern town you're likely to find a reminder of Faulkner's time spent here, so drop in and take a peak at where he lived and where he gathered inspiration for his fictional world!
