Rowan Oak

William Faulkner's home in Oxford, Mississippi. In 1930 William Faulkner purchased what was then known as “The Bailey Place,” a large primitive Greek Revival house that pre-dated the Civil War, standing on four acres of cedars and hardwood. He was fascinated with its history, knowing that it had been built by a Colonel Sheegog from Tennessee who settled in Oxford when it was a tiny frontier settlement of the 1840s. Faulkner renamed it “Rowan Oak.” #Literature #Mississippi #Rowan_Oak #William_Faulkner #writer
