The Margaret Mitchell House is a historic house museum located in Atlanta, Georgia. The structure was the home of author Margaret Mitchell in the early 20th century. It is located in Midtown, at 979 Crescent Avenue. Constructed by Cornelius J. Sheehan as a single-family residence in a then-fashionable section of residential Peachtree Street, the building's original address was 806 Peachtree Street. The house was known as the Crescent Apartments when Mitchell and her husband lived in Apt. 1 on the ground floor from 1925 to 1932. While living there, Mitchell wrote the bulk of her Pulitzer Prize-winning 1936 novel, Gone with the Wind.
The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is also designated as a historic building by the City of Atlanta.

Very small house in downtown Atlanta. You feel like you've got a private tour since there is not a lot of people. Great place for fans of the Gone with the wind. If you lucky you can get a free parking next to the house.

Obviously interesting to see where she wrote but don't expect Tara. Her flat is tiny and takes no time at all to see. But the guides are good and there is an accompanying exhibition principally about the making and premiere of the film. So a lot to take in and worth a visit.

Not a lot to see but worth a visit nonetheless. Had no idea Mitchell led such an interesting life! Parking is free and right across the street. Staff was very nice and helpful and it is close to several nice places to eat. Was glad I went and would warmly recommend it to all true Mitchell fans.

Fun historic gem in the heart of midtown They do good job of honoring Mitchell's legacy as well as those who starred in Gone with the Wind Worth a visit if you're in the area

Not a fan of either the book or the film, so there wasn't much to enjoy about this particular attraction, it's basically just a replica of the room she lived in and a lot about the actors from the film. On the plus side, the tickets are included in the price of the Atlanta History Center, so you're not out anything if you think you might want to check it out but you're not sure it's going to be worth it for you.

Our guide was incredibly knowledgable, and really brought the time period of Margaret Mitchell back to life. The building has been restored and remodeled and is a historic treasure in the middle of midtown. All of the staff was friendly and accommodating. There is a free parking lot directly across from the museum, as well as a small gift shop inside with lots of "Gone With the Wind" memorabilia, books, and other cute southern themed items. It is small, but definitely worth a visit and a couple hours of your time.

This is the restored building and apartment. None of her belongings but decorated in style of the period. They do have the original Scarlett/Vivian painting that hung in 'Tara'in the movie and the front door to Tara as well. Pretty interesting for movie fans but $13 is steep for entry.

Jonathan was a wonderful tour guide who was extremely knowledgable and enthusiastic. He used history and literature to help people understand the complexities of Gone With the Wind and the time in which it was written. Would absolutely visit again.

It wasn't the easiest place to find, but once there it was quite nice. We were there for an alumni discussion. The traffic passing by got pretty loud from time to time but it was an overall great event.

Recently got to witness the powerful words of my favorite poet Sarah Kay at this location. It was truly an amazing experience!

This place speaks for itself. If you're a fan of "Gone with the wind" - the book and movie, in particular; and Margaret Mitchell, in general, you'll find it very interesting. It's technically not "Margaret Mitchell House" but the place where she wrote the majority part of "Gone with the wind". The tour guider was very friendly & helpful. We took the tour; it was rather short, so consider it only if you're a big fan of Margaret.

Very detailed focus on the author. Informative and enjoyable. I would like to have learned more about the house itself. Some of the newspaper articles I saw on the tour seemed to indicate a very interesting history. Overall this was great.

Fun mix of local history and "Gone with the Wind" info, inspired me to actually read the book and the sequel, too! The man giving the tours was such a gem, his enthusiasm was contagious!

Margaret Mitchell House gave us the opportunity to learn more about a favorite author, who inspired a following world wide as we read the pages of Gone with the Wind. The movie has broken every record imaginable, and the characters created by Margaret Mitchell will forever live in our hearts... For those who choose not to visit... we say "Frankly my dear... we don't give .....!!!' But, try not to miss this rare opportunity!
