The UM Museum and Historic Houses complex is an instructional site for our students. Among its holdings are Southern folk art, Greek and Roman antiquities, 19th century scientific instruments, and American fine art. Part of the museum complex is Rowan Oak, a historic literary site that was once the home of William Faulkner, Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning author. The Museum also owns the Walton-Young Historic House – once home to critic and satirist Stark Young.
