Designated a National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Eudora Welty House in Jackson, Mississippi is a literary house museum and historic garden where Pulitzer Prize-winning author Eudora Welty lived and wrote for 76 years.

Her home is one of the most intact literary houses in America in terms of its authenticity. Its exterior, interior, and furnishings are as they were in 1986 when Welty bequeathed her home to the State of Mississippi: paintings, photographs, objects d’art, linens, furniture, draperies, rugs and thousands of books in their original places.

Welty always considered this her family home, and, in giving it to the State of Mississippi, she emphasized that it was the house of her family, a family that honored books and reading.

Discover what inspired one of America’s most significant authors through guided tours of her home, interpretive museum exhibits, and a walk through her historic botanical garden.
