Girlhood Home of Lula Carson Smith - Carson McCullers

*****
Carson lived in this house as a young girl and teenager (10 to 17 years old). She would often write stories that were performed by her brother and sister for their family in in the sitting room. She married her husband, James Reeves McCullers in 1937, in the garden. She wrote her first novel, "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" after moving to North Carolina.

To my sensibility, this is what a "home" should look like ... warm and inviting, clean and well-kept, and hopefully would include lots of love and laughter!

That is such a great house. I have to agree with Jacob on this post.

Carson McCullers is one of my favorite writers. Read her books as a teenager along with Truman Capote and Flannery O'Conner. Interesting to see the house!
