The Margaret Mitchell House and Museum was the one-time home of this great author who penned the legendary Gone with the Wind while she lived here. The house was comprised of what were sometimes called the Crescent Apartments. Mitchell and her husband occupied apartment number 1 from 1925 to 1932. During these years, what would become the Margaret Mitchell House Museum was the place of creative energy for the author that would produce the now ubiquitous, Pulitzer Prize-winning book that would ultimately be turned into one of the great films of all time. Today, anyone on an Atlanta vacation can embark on Margaret Mitchell House tours and enjoy an extensive Gone with the Wind exhibition, which tells the story of Margaret Mitchell's life and times; it's one of the most popular things to do.
