Oxford, MS

This past April for my husband’s spring break, we took a little road trip through the south with the ultimate destination of Oxford, Mississippi. John is a high school English Teacher and a huge fan of William Faulkner, so Oxford seemed like the exact right destination for our pilgrimage. We got to see Faulkner’s home, with writings on the walls and maps of his town Yoknapatawpa; we visited his grave with a little Jack Daniels in tow; and explored the quaint town of Oxford taking a few photos along the way. 

We stayed at the Graduate, just a few blocks out from the square in Oxford, and it was perfect! We could walk everywhere we wanted to go AND they had a rooftop bar that served frose – my fave.  So whether you are in town for an Ole Miss game, or nerd-ing out on a Tour de South like we were, I highly recommend staying at the Graduate!

and now for a few fun touristy photos of all of the fun Faulkner spots around Oxford >>

Rowan Oak, Faulkner’s home + where he did much of his writing. An absolutely gorgeous place.  We probably could have spent hours here just lounging on the grounds if we hadn’t had to get back on the road towards home.

    Excellent writing. Now zI have to finally read Faulkner. I usually read indigenous and Canadian authors. My name is Ray Battams and I have known Carol for 50 years
