Georgia's Gone With the Wind Museum
One room was completely related to Scarlett's fashion-Truly Spectacular! Of course, I've seen the Hollywood classic more times than I can count, and I've repeatedly noticed Vivien Leigh's miniscule waist, but seeing her dress' waistband was crazy. The true treat was the green curtain dress. Even though the sign said "Do Not Touch," I couldn't resist running my hand over the velvety sleeves.
Other memorabilia included an exact replica of the first flag made in Fayette County for the War Between the States as well as movie posters, a Tara model, a beautiful Scarlett O'Hara Madame Alexander doll, and behind the scenes footage from the film-just to name a few. With admission just costing $5, I'd definitely suggest it to any GWTW fan.
Newscentral also made the 30 minute car ride to the Margaret Mitchell house. We shot a standup in front of the gates, but unfortunately the guards wouldn't let us film inside.
