Over at Chicken Spaghetti I find someone sharing my love of Eudora Welty and her One Writer's Beginnings. According to Susan, you can go on tours of Welty's family home and even see some of the books Welty read as a child. Will add that to my to-do list along with visiting the Edward Gorey House and maybe the Alcott house for the next time we make it down that way.
I've already been to The House of Seven Gables and still have nightmares about that staircase. On this side of the border, I would recommend the former home of Thomas Chandler Haliburton for those visiting Nova Scotia.
