Margaret Mitchell House Tours

When Margaret Mitchell wrote her epic, Pulitzer Prize-winning, romantic novel, Gone With the Wind, she didn't do it from a desk at a picturesque country cottage or a sprawling Victorian-era mansion. Instead, she wrote the novel that would be turned into one of the greatest movies ever made from a tiny apartment on the first floor of what was then known as the Crescent Apartments. The Tudor Revival-style home with red brick and white trim served as Mitchell's home from 1925 until 1932 and is today listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The site is known as the Margaret Mitchell House and Museum.
 
Here visitors learn about Mitchell's life in Atlanta as well as fun facts surrounding her writing of the novel. An adjacent building houses a "Making of the Movie" museum, to which entrance is included with the price of admission. Some of the most exceptional items displayed in the house are photos from Gone With the Wind's Atlanta movie premiere in 1939; the portrait of Scarlett O'Hara hanging in the Butler Mansion in the film; and pieces of the original Hollywood movie set. The site hosts events throughout the year, including book readings and signings, and every summer, the Margaret Mitchell House plays home to a series of writing camps for young aspiring writers. 

Practical Info

The Margaret Mitchell House is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tours are available 30 minutes after opening until 30 minutes before closing every day. The house museum is a short walk from the Mid-Town MARTA station.
