Built in 1844, this house and estate served as celebrated author William Faulkner's home from the 1930s till his death in 1962. Although Faulkner is one of America's most famous authors today, he wasn't fabulously wealthy during his lifetime. Surprisingly, this writer was pretty handy; much of the renovations and repairs were his own work.
