Guided tours of the Margaret Mitchell House are offered daily and include visits to her Crescent Avenue apartment, which she affectionately nicknamed “The Dump,” and to exhibitions about her life and the movie version of her book.
The historic space where Mitchell wrote Gone With the Wind provides an apt setting for learning about her motives for writing the novel and the lifestyle of the author and her husband, John Marsh, in 1920s Atlanta.
The exhibition Margaret Mitchell: A Passion for Character presents the aspiring writer through her girlhood writings, Mitchell’s career as a reporter for the Atlanta Journal newspaper, how the popularity of the book affected her life, and the philanthropy that characterized her later years. The Making of a Film Legend: Gone With the Wind exhibition details the transformation of Gone With the Wind from a best-selling novel to a film classic.
