Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and operated by the Atlanta History Center, the Margaret Mitchell House is a turn-of-the century, three-story, Tudor Revival building where Margaret Mitchell lived and wrote her Pulitzer-Prize winning book, Gone With the Wind.
Take a step back into the literary masterpiece Gone With the Wind when you visit the Road to Tara Museum, nestled in downtown Jonesboro, GA, the "official home" of Gone With the Wind.
Marietta Gone With the Wind Museum: Scarlett on the Square is home to a privately owned collection of "GWTW" book and movie memorabilia.
The Atlanta movie premiere was at the Loew's Grand (no longer standing), but modern visitors can tour the Fox, the 1920s-era former movie palace that was the starting place for the huge 1939 parade celebrating the premiere of Gone With the Wind.
This garden cemetery, founded in 1850, is the final resting place of Margaret Mitchell, along with many of many Atlanta's settlers, builders, and most noted citizens from golfer Bobby Jones to Mayor Maynard Jackson.
The plaza honoring the legacy of Atlanta's Margaret Mitchell, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Gone with the Wind, is at the intersection of Peachtree, Forsyth and Carnegie Way.
