The nineteenth century farmhouse features art, memorabilia and press about the famous, edge cutting twentieth century novelist, Erskine Caldwell. His books, such as "Tobacco Road" and "God's Little Acre," inspired the love of Hollywood, the respect of readers of fine literature, the wrath of those who didn't appreciate his portrayal of poverty-stricken reality in the South, and recently the honor of his hometown.
The Little Manse: Erskine Caldwell Birthplace and Museum, c. 1879 is located on the Town Square across from Historic Moreland Mill. Open Thurs. - Saturday, from 10 a.m-3 p.m. by appointment.
