Directions to the Eudora Welty House and Garden

1109 Pinehurst Street, Jackson, MS 39202


Designated parking for visitors is available on Pinehurst Street in front of the House and the Education and Visitors Center next door. If traveling by bus or large van, contact the Welty House prior to your visit for parking information. Please be considerate of our Belhaven neighborhood homeowners by avoiding their driveways.


The Education and Visitors Center is handicapped accessible. Parking is available in the EVC driveway. Because of the historic nature of the Eudora Welty House, it does not have an accessible entrance ramp or an elevator to the second floor. Visitors who are unable to use stairs can view scrapbooks and a video tour of the house. The Garden is accessible from the gravel driveway but some areas within the garden have uneven terrain. For questions about accessibility, please contact the EWHG at (601) 353-7762 or
