This is the re-built house in which Margaret Mitchell wrote Gone with the Wind. They re-created her apartment. There is memorabilia to look at and some short videos. You can go across to the next building and see the door to Tara used for some of the filming and the picture of Scarlet used in the movie. The parking situation... More

While the house is well preserved, not sure how excited you can get looking at a the home of the author of 1 famous book.

Although I grew up in Atlanta and have visited family there many times, I have never visited this site which is managed by the Atlanta Historical Society. It is a wonderful, quiet little nook amid the skyscrapers of downtown Atlanta. We had a very entertaining docent, also named Margaret, who gave our small group an interesting tour of the apartment...

Its pricey, but if you are a fan, it's a must see in Atlanta. If you are not a fan, skip it. The old house is beautifully restored to its original furnishings.

Lovely visit to what is a very small flat in which the author MM lived with her husband in an larger house which now houses the story of Gone with the Wind. We had a lovely young woman who acted as our guide and gave us a lot of info on MM that I had not been aware of. I... More

I learned more about Gone With the Wind than I knew when I got there. That said, I like old houses. Hers was an apartment. I also should admit that I never read the book or saw the movie. BUT, after going to the house, I might read the book (or see the movie) one day. I learned that she... More

Me and my husband loved visiting the Margaret Mitchell house. We had a wonderful tour of guide by the name of Margaret. She was very knowledgeable and was a great communicator we loved the history there and the stories she told. You don't want to miss this it's good for most any age.

History is more than an old book or old piece of furniture.. There is a story behind each and every piece, and that person who likes history will get the benefit. . At the Margaret Mitchell house we learned why's and reasons behind her writing style, how and why Atlanta was chosen for the premier opening of 'Gone With the... More

Really enjoyed my tour today with Miss Margaret. It's fitting (to me) that I was visiting the day before Mitchell's untimely passing on the 16 August. I read the book first as an 11 year old in just over a day taking it with me everywhere including the bath.

There are much better places to visit. The tour was terrible. Nothing original in the house. Very boring. Could have gotten the same information if I had read about her in a book. The tour guide was boring and long winded. I felt like he thought was talking to school children. I don't fell like I want to read posters... More
