Established in 2005, the William Faulkner Literary Garden distills the writer’s use of the southern landscape in his fiction. Whether it is the ‘odor of verbena’ or Granny Millard’s rose cuttings or even the poke salat berries she used for ink in her scheme to steal back the mules – these plants are alive and well in the museum garden.
The garden is a living green space for education and for repose. Bring your lunch for a quite place to reflect or bring the family to learn more about the plants Faulkner uses to set the scenes in his work.
This is a one of a kind literary garden reflecting the prose of one of the world’s most famous writers.
