House Open to Public
Eudora Welty House is a National Historic Landmark and one of the nation's most
intact literary house museums, reflecting Welty's
life there over seventy-six years. Welty
left her house and collection of thousands of books to the state,
and the Welty family donated furniture and art. Visitors will see Welty's house
as she lived in it.
The Department of Archives and History has overseen the transition from private
residence to historic site. The department is now working to open a visitors center
to provide space for special exhibits on Welty as well as on-site restrooms and
visitors can take a detailed guided virtual tour
of the Eudora Welty House and garden.
Eudora Welty House, located at 1119 Pinehurst Street in Jackson, is open for tours
by reservation only Tuesdays through Fridays at 9 and 11 a.m. and 1 and 3 p.m.
Admission prices are $5 for adults, $3 for students, and free for children under
six. Group discounts are available on all tours. Welty's birthday was April 13,
and when the 13th of each month falls on a day the Eudora Welty House is open,
admission will be free.
