Margaret Mitchell's one and only novel, "Gone with the Wind," was born in an apartment in this turn-of-the-century Tudor Revival mansion. Now a museum on the National Register of Historic Places, the house offers visitors a tour that tells the story of the author, the Pulitzer Prize-winning book and the making of the movie.

This is a fascinating place to visit. The docents are great and there is a lot of history about the author and the subsequent film. And you can get to sit close to where Margaret Mitchell wrote the book.

You can tour the house and learn about the famous author's life. There are several excellent movies there. One tells about how the movie of "Gone with the Wind" was made.

We weren't quite sure we wanted to visit this attraction, but we are glad we did. The tour guide (female) was fabulous and could answer all questions. She was very engaging and well spoken. It was an educational and informative visit.

We arrived as the tour was already starting. The front desk waved us in and trusted us to pay after the tour, which we did. The docent was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The furnishings are very much as they had been during Ms. Mitchell's stay...More
