Rowan Oak, Oxford

Mississippi’s Most Sophisticated Small Town
Nowhere else is there a better example of a small, Southern town than in Oxford, where its perfectly preserved town square is still the hub of activity, from exquisite local boutiques to unique restaurants with mouth-watering menus prepared by award winning chefs.  Literature lovers from all over the world flock to Rowan Oak, home of Nobel- and Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Faulkner, whose presence is felt from his bronze statue at the city hall to the campus of the University of Mississippi, where studies of Southern history and culture take center stage.  And if you happen to be in town on a Thursday night, don’t miss out on Thacker Mountain Radio, a live, unrehearsed broadcast from the square that features author readings and a wide array of musical performances.
