Margaret Mitchell House

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 . This house serves as the heart of Atlanta History Center's Midtown Campus and it houses permanent exhibitions that focus on various topics surrounding the building's history and its famous occupant, Margaret Mitchell. Through guided tours of Margaret Mitchell's apartment, guests can explore the complex issues raised by Gone With the Wind, and by Mitchell's life. The Margaret Mitchell House examines the popularity along with criticism of the book and film. Atlanta History Center encourages open discussion about the content of the book and film, the evidence from historical reality, and Margaret Mitchell's life. Along with interpretation about the house's former resident, the Midtown Campus also serves as an accessible hub for community events, such as Author Talks, Atlanta United match viewing parties, Atlanta Pride events, and many others.
