Constructed in 1908 for Christian Webb Welty, the Welty House is the birthplace and childhood home of author Eudora Welty. The property is architecturally significant as a foursquare with Colonial Revival features, typical of early twentieth-century residential construction in Jackson. It was listed on the National Register in 1980, but was delisted in 1986 because of insensitive alterations (mainly a large shed dormer and deck on the roof).
