Fodor's Review

Writer William Sydney Porter, better known as O. Henry, rented this modest cottage from 1893 to 1895. Moved a few blocks from its original location, the home today contains O. Henry memorabilia and period furniture. It has hosted the popular O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships in its backyard every May since 1977; it also sponsors student writing workshops.
