This tour shows you the homes that inspired Gone with the Wind. The guided tape on the tour van tells you about Margaret Mitchell's gathering the information for the book. The tour is very informative and lasts about an hour and 15 minutes. Hop on and off the van for photos. After that, you can spend as long as you... More

I have lived in Georgia for many years...I cannot count the times that I have driven by this museum and wondered what was hiding inside! I finally broke down when my mother was here visiting and decided to take the whole crew to Tara.... It is housed in downtown Jonesboro right on the tracks. The museum is actually inside the... More

While this is my hometown I must say the museum is a must see if you care about literature, the history of this country and the culture of the South and all things Gone With The Wind. While rumors abound about the real Tara, there is no dispute among folks versed in the true history of the area that Tara... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this little museum. It is all about the civil war and the book Martha Mitchell wrote as well as the movie released in 1939. It had the dresses "Scareltt" wore in the movie and it had many photos as well as lots of information about the civil war focusing on the Atlanta area. GWTW is more about... More

This museum is quite small. Fans of the movie will be more impressed with the costumes and photos. I found the Civil War displays more interesting.

Wasn't quite sure what to expect at the Visitor's Center/Road to Tara Museum in the old train depot. Lots more than I thought would be in there. It's a must for any "Gone with the Wind" fan, with memorabilia and costumes - and had a really solid area on the Battle of Jonesboro, with interesting relics. An Atlanta native, I... More

One of my mom's Mother's Day gifts was this tour. So my sister, mom and I headed 30+ miles south and enjoyed a few hours hearing, seeing and reading about not only "Gone with the Wind" and its author Margaret Mitchell, but also the Battle of Jonesboro. The last stand for Confederate forces before the surrender of Atlanta. The Road... More
