Great place to visit even if you're not into literature. Lots of history and antiques. Quite and peaceful setting with beautiful views. There is an easy hiking trail you can take from campus to here.

Grayson Smith

Just a lovely place and omg the trees are so beautiful.. after closing hours a lot of photographers and their subjects come here to take pictures, but there are plenty of places to lay down a blanket and relax without being in any bodies way. Never been during open hours.

Julie Sauls

A MUSEUM WITHOUT A GIFT SHOP!!!! I dare you to ask to buy a t-shirt or poster here!! Great bit of history, beautiful scenery. It's a gem in the Palm Springs of the Bible Belt. Terribly under utilized potential profit generator here!!

The home of William Faulkner, on of the greatest Mississippi writers of all time who was awarded the Nobel Prize for his literature. He was an alcoholic most of his career. The home & grounds feature the "slave"/later the help quarters, a smoke house, a barn where Faulkner housed his various horse's & the main house also known as Rowan Oak. There are no Rowan Oaks on the property.

Richard Gong

Cathy Massey

Special event. Shady and cool outside

Devin mclaughlin

Great spot to visit for William Faulkner fans and history buffs. The house is well maintained and curated to give an authentic look at how Faulkner’s home looked when he occupied it.

Jose Castillo

Shelly S

Such a wonderful visit! I appreciate that they offer the self guided tour so that we could roam the house and grounds at our own pace and in the order we preferred. Staff are obviously incredibly knowledgeable.

Alicia Miller

Mark Horton

Lots of info about Faulkner, and the grounds and home are beautiful.


Very beautiful and peaceful

Tabitha Lawler

The grounds and house are fascinating. You can step through the doorway of each room, held back by a plexiglass half-circle. It only costs 5 bucks and you can wander around as much as you'd like. Very low-key, very cool.

Rhya Bleser

The home of William Faulkner is a cool place to see when touring the University of Mississippi or Oxford, Mississippi. I did not have the chance to tour the house itself, but the outside and property is beautiful. The handicap parking is not easily accessible and it is a bit of driving through unpaved roads and bumpy paths to get to the house. It is within walking distance from the Ole Miss. A good history spot of Mississippi.

Alvin Dortch

Wonderful place even today.

Michael Howland

A wonderful museum about 5 blocks from the house. To see how Faulkner lived and how his rooms looked after his death is like taking a snapshot in time. Really cool.

Best tour I took on my whole vacation. You can even use Bill's commode (!)

Illuminating peek at Faulkner's life. Tour was self-guided, but still informative. Student representative was pleasant and helpful, and the entrance fee was modest (they accept cash only!). While several of the rooms seemed like standard "this is what an old house looked like" fare, there were enough placards and informational displays about the author's life to make it relatable. Of the house itself: The author's personality is still evident in his home. Of note were the sparseness of his daughter's room to the literal writing on the walls in his study and telephone nook. (Perception of these areas varied widely within our group: did the study graffiti reflect a carefree spirit who didn't care about appearances or materials, or a somewhat callous soul who lived like he knew—and didn't care— that someone would have to clean up after him?)

Such a great property. It was a treat to explore. The house was worth the price to tour. I enjoyed the woods trail to campus as well

Stella Blue

Beautiful landscape for photography.

tanya whitson

Beautiful historic property. Well maintained. Lots of southern charm and history there.

Wanda Birdsong

William Faulkner's home. City of Oxford has grown around the property, but it still feels as if you are miles away from civilization, quiet, peaceful, lovely setting. Interesting and historical.

Courtney Hudson

It exposes the excesses of modern America.

Adrianna Hicks

Absolutely beautiful

Jon Dropco

It's an old house with pretty trees. The hiking trail goes up to the baseball field.

J.R. Parsons

Fun piece of history, but unlikely to excite. Beware: your kids will be ready to go after 5 minutes.

Devin Larsen

Whether a fan of Faulkner or not, this property is a relic that can be appreciated by any nature lover or history buff. While Oxford has grown around Rowan Oak, the home and property still feel secluded, remaining quiet and harboring its natural environment that Faulkner so adored. For fans of Faulkner, such as myself, the tour becomes far more enchanting - walking into and experiencing the spaces he existed in while writing some of his seminal works. Highly recommended.

Aayush upadhyay

Nice place to know about William Faulkner. The entry is free for Olemiss student. A must visit place when you are in Oxford.

Jared Morton

Jon Vandiveer

Charles Roy Washington III

A step back into history. I can only imagine what it was like during Faulkner's era. Still yet a little bit of the inspiration he felt is there in the magic of these old walls. Just imagine open your eyes and see.

Ken Kossum

Great historical presentation for a renowned author.

Raymond Myers

Truly impressive old mansion, but no tourist services at all during hours we visited.

Teresa Johnson

We didn't take an official tour, but we enjoyed the beauty of the exterior of the house and the grounds. A lovely piece of American literary history. I'm glad it's available for the public to see.
