The Meek-Duvall-Doty House.

The Meek-Duvall-Doty House at 803 University Avenue was the first home of William Faulkner and his bride Estelle Oldham Franklin.
They rented a portion of the house from Miss Elma Meek in 1929. It was here that Faulkner penned As I Lay Dying, A Rose for Miss Emily and several other pieces.
The “Duvall Home,” as part of the University Avenue District, was declared a National Historic Place on March 10, 2009.
