Margaret Mitchell House Tours

star-5
1 Review
Margaret Mitchell House
Though much of the epic Pulitzer Prize–winning novel Gone with the Wind takes place in famously grand houses, author Margaret Mitchell penned the tome from a tiny Atlanta apartment. Today her home is the Margaret Mitchell House, which serves as a tribute to where the author lived and worked while writing the novel from 1925 to 1932.

The Basics
Though humble with its red brick and white trim, the Tudor Revival–style apartment building (formerly known as the Crescent Apartments) is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Here visitors learn about Mitchell’s life in Atlanta and trivia about her writing of the novel. Guided tours are offered every half-hour and included with admission. An adjacent building houses a Making of the Movie exhibit with exceptional items such as photos from Gone with the Wind’s 1939 Atlanta movie premiere; the portrait of Scarlett O’Hara hanging in the Butler Mansion in the film; and pieces of the original Hollywood movie set. 

You can visit the house independently, or as part of a Gone with the Wind tour that includes other key locations from the book and movie, an Atlanta film tour, or a tour of historic Atlanta homes.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • For Atlanta history buffs and Gone with the Wind fans alike, the Margaret Mitchell House is a must. It’s not the best choice for children, who may find it uninteresting.
  • If you need to grab a bite, there are a handful of restaurants on the same block as the museum.
  • The house is accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
The Margaret Mitchell House is a short walk from Atlanta’s Midtown MARTA station. Limited free parking is available at the museum, plus there is paid street parking and a nearby public parking garage.

When to Get There
The Margaret Mitchell House is open from 10am to 5:30pm Monday through Saturday and from 12pm to 5:30pm on Sunday. Tours are available 30 minutes after opening until 30 minutes before closing every day. The museum hosts events such as book readings and signings throughout the year, and every summer it hosts a series of camps for young aspiring writers.

The Atlanta History Center
The Margaret Mitchell House is part of the Atlanta History Center, though it is located 13 miles (21 kilometers) away from the center’s main campus. For a full day of exploring Atlanta history, purchase a single admission ticket that gives you access to the Atlanta History Museum, Smith Family Farm, the Swan House mansion, and other sights.
Address: 990 Peachtree Street, Atlanta, Georgia, USA
