Welcome to William Faulkner’s Rowan Oak

Rowan Oak was William Faulkner’s private world, in reality and imagination, and served as inspiration for much of his work for more than 40 years. The modified Greek Revival home sits on 29 heavily wooded acres just south of the historic Oxford Square. The property and grounds are open to the public year-round, from dawn until dusk, including the Bailey Woods Trail, which connects the historic property to the University of Mississippi Museum.
