I have visited the Margaret Mitchell House before but it's always nice to see what has been changed or added. It is a miracle that this house still stands to represent one of the most celebrated authors in history. Gone with the Wind holds a special place in my heart and the stand in the very spot where Ms. Mitchell... More

We visited the Margret Mitchell House immediately after out Atlanta Historical Museum visit as the admission price is included in the price of the ticket. The building is very small and with the free tour, can be viewed in less than 90 minutes including the tour. The focus is on the life of Margaret Mitchell and her authorship of Gone... More

Margaret Mitchell's apartment set up to look like what it was when she lived there, information about her life and career, and the film version of Gone With the Wind. I loved seeing the 1930's apartment and reading about her life, which was aytpical for a woman in her time. Very informative. Entire place takes about an hour.

Linda did a fantastic job explaining Mitchell's biography, legacy, and life in "The Dump," the apartment where Mitchell lived with her second husband. The apartment is small and beautiful, and we were allowed to linger in the apartment even after the tour ended. When we needed to sit for a bit, we could watch the documentary about the making of...

The house was apartments when she lived there. The house burned down in 1996 but her ground floor apartment was saved. Worth a visit if you have any interest in Gone With The Wind.

The tour guide knew so much about Margaret Mitchell, and was so exciting doing the talk, that it really made the tour great.

Although Gone With the Wind has been a huge contribution to literature and film, Margaret Mitchell's life also helped crack the mold if what was expected of proper Southern women. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour provided by staff. I also highly suggest purchasing the admission package that includes the Atlanta History Center.

I would recommend doing the tour, they run about every 30 minutes. It is included with admission and offers added insight into the life of Margaret Mitchell. It is a fairly quick attraction. There is a building that runs a documentary on the making of the film and I found that quite interesting.

Even if your not a Gone With The Wind fan, but like to take in local history, this is a must see. Had a great tour guide yesterday she really knew her stuff. I found some of the local signs an google maps not helpful! But definitely worth the find and enjoyed the local walk.
