Andalusia Farm – Home of Flannery O’Connor

Andalusia is the family farm of author Flannery O’Connor, who lived and wrote at the property during the last 13 years of her life. The property consists of more than 1,500 acres of pastures and woodland in Milledgeville, Georgia. The Hill House was a tenant farmhouse at Andalusia that dates from the mid-19th century and is most significant for the mid-20th century when Jack and Louise Hill lived there.

The Hill House was in critical condition once funding was secured for this project. With two gaping holes in the roof and a limited staff, the Foundation was afraid the Hill House would be lost. Garbutt was brought on board as construction manager and helped to swiftly save the threatened structure. Racing against the elements, the Foundation, Garbutt and LAS worked together to save the Hill House before it collapsed and shepherded the project through both National Park Service and state review by the Georgia State Historic Preservation Office.
