Between 1917 and 1932, young Tom “Tennessee” Williams lived with, and then regularly visited his grandparents in Clarksdale, Mississippi, where his grandfather Walter E. Dakin was rector of St. George’s Episcopal Church.

The museum is housed in the four upstairs bedrooms in the former rectory of St. George’s Episcopal church, once occupied by Williams and his family.
