  • The house was known as the Crescent Apartments when she & her husband lived here from 1925 to 1932. While living here, she wrote the bulk of her Pulitzer prize-winning novel, Gone With The Wind.
  • Luv it :-)
  • Now a museum dedicated to her life and work, Mitchell found her apartment here far from ideal during the writing of Gone with the Wind. She called it the Dump. (From Aerial America)
  • Now that you have seen where she lived and did a lot of her writing, go visit her final resting place at Oakland Cemetery.
  • Dont miss the adjacent Gone with the Wind Museum, filled with memorabilia from the movie, including Scarlett's bengaline honeymoon gown and the front door to Tara.
  • The House offers tours, a museum and museum shop, as well as a literature series that showcases Southern authors. MMH often hosts book signings. It's usually warm inside, dress light!
  • What a wonderful woman she was
  • Discover the history and legacy behind one of the world's most beloved novels through the Gone with the Wind Trail in and around Atlanta. See for more information.
  • Author Margaret Mitchell was killed in 1949 crossing Peachtree Street as a pedestrian at the intersection with 13th Street.

  • The furniture isnt from MM
  • This very small apartment is not even historically restored. Unless you have plenty of time in Atlanta, you should visit more interesting attractions.
  • It was an incredible place to tour & we learned so much!
  • Take the guided tour of the first floor, if possible. The second floor also has great photos and films. There is a documentary of the film's making that loops for 2 hours. Free parking avail.
  • Quaint & neat, wonderful staff and volunteers - - they really treat you as family
  • Gone with the wind writer's lived here.
  • Aqu vivi la escritora del libro lo que el viento se llev. Un poco caro a mi parecer.
  • A must see when downtown for its historical value to the city both economically & socially. Reminds Atlanta how far we've come & how much further we have to go. Take a tour & enjoy the energy.
  • This is called house but technically an apartment building and a restored one. Nevertheless visiting here is a great way to pay a respect to one of the most well known novels in the world!
