The Worker’s Houses

Worker House #3

These three buildings located far to the south of the Main House are where the farm workers lived with their families while working at Andalusia. Though the Hills and their border Shot were near constants at the farm, a great number of people came and went during the O’Connor’s time here. After years of dealing with bad dairy workers, their bickering, jealousies, and thefts, Flannery’s mother Regina had had enough. She sold the dairy herd and transitioned the farm into beef production in 1961 (The Habit of Being, O’Connor 445). The Worker’s Houses are in a heavily forested area and are not currently open to the public, but there are plans to eventually restore and open them.
