Tour Rowan Oak
Rowan Oak, the antebellum house that Faulkner bought when still struggling to make a living with words, is now a museum. It
is owned by the University of Mississippi, which on the eve of the 148th anniversary of the Civil War finally changed its
mascot from the politically loaded Rebel to the Rebel Black Bear, a nod to one of Faulkner’s most critically acclaimed stories,
The Bear, which appeared in full form as a chapter in Go Down, Moses.
