Trace the footsteps of Margaret Mitchell and discover the birthplace of her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Gone With the Wind. 

Guided tours of the Margaret Mitchell House are offered daily and include visits to her Crescent Avenue apartment, which she affectionately nicknamed "The Dump." Explore two exhibitions, "Margaret Mitchell: A Passion for Character" and "The Making of a Movie Legend: Gone With the Wind."

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.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and operated by the Atlanta History Center, the Margaret Mitchell House is a turn-of-the century, three-story, Tudor Revival building.
