Gone With the Wind’s Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler live on at the Margaret Mitchell House & Museum (990 Peachtree St., Atlanta, 404-249-7015), the place where the author lived when she wrote the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel. The house, fully decked out in authentic period furniture, is a majestic turn-of-the-century, three-story Tudor Revival mansion. The restored and renovated building attracts more than 55,000 visitors annually seeking a look at the life of the woman who created fiction’s most famous Southern belle.
