I recently visited Atlanta, Georgia, where I was attending the International Rotary Convention. I had little to no knowledge of Atlanta, and was pleasantly surprised with some of the amazing tourist spots! One of them being The Margaret Mitchell House + Museum – the original home of the famous author and birthplace of “Gone With The Wind”! FYI: It took her 9 years to write the book, during which time she would seal chapters of her book in envelopes + hide them in secret spots around the home. I highly recommend this fantastic destination if you’re in the city – an entertaining, educational venue where you can learn some valuable historical info, not only about the author’s life, but also about Georgia history + the era in which the film was made. My favorite part was the guided tour through the apartment + the behind-the-scenes info on the audition process with highlights on the making of the famous film (including archival footage of the film premiere + celebrity interviews).

Margaret Mitchell, Peggy Marsh to her friends, dubbed her apartment, “The Dump.” Surprisingly, it is in this shabby little apartment on the bottom floor that this petite, yet mighty woman wrote a big ‘ol book that sold faster than a duck on a June bug!

It is here that the notorious Peggy Marsh wrote Gone With the Wind. A Pulitzer Prize followed. Fame, fortune, and fans, too.
