  • Description

    A historic house museum celebrates the life and achievements of Margaret Mitchell, the author of the famous novel Gone with the Wind, which got her the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937.
    Mitchell lived in apartment #1 from 1925 to 1932. As a former reporter of the Atlanta Journal recovering from an ankle injury, she started writing a Civil War-era novel. Although she did not intend to publish it, when she did so in 1936, it immediately became a best seller. In 1937 the movie version was released and is still considered as one of the best movies of all time.
    The museum offers several permanent exhibitions. On the first floor where she lived, there is an exhibit about her life with interesting details about how she wrote the book. Other exhibits are about making the movie and its world premiere in Atlanta. Expect to find some interesting details about things that happened behind the scenes, as well as seeing a film capturing the moment Hattie McDaniel won the Oscar for her role in the movie. She was the first African American to win the Academy Awards prize.
