Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and operated by the Atlanta History
Center, the Margaret Mitchell House is a turn-of-the century, three-story, Tudor Revival
building where Margaret Mitchell lived and wrote her Pulitzer-Prize winning book,
Gone With the Wind.
Built in 1899 by Cornelius J. Sheehan, the single-family home on fashionable Peachtree Street was converted into a ten-unit apartment building in 1919.
Margaret Mitchell and her husband, John Marsh, moved into Apartment No.1 in
1925, when the building was known as the Crescent Apartments. Mitchell’s
apartment is the only interior space of the restored house that is preserved as
an apartment and maintains original architectural features, including the famous
leaded glass window which Mitchell looked out while writing the book.
