Margaret Mitchell Home on Peachtree Street
Old Margaret Mitchell Home at 195 Peachtree Street in Atlanta. This home was sold by her brother after her death. She was the famous Atlanta author of “Gone With the Wind” who seemed to have fashioned her book somewhat after her Fitzgerald ancestors of Jonesboro (their home is on Mundy's Mill Road, in a state of disrepair). The movie was viewed in 1936 at the Loew's Grand Theatre (formerly DeGive's Grand Opera House) and all of the players, including Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh were present.
