Cinephiles and sightseers can immerse themselves in the historical scenery of Jonesboro that inspired Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With The Wind while gleaning film facts and admiring memorabilia. During the Southern Belles and Whistles Tour, Tara enthusiasts can examine original movie props, scratch and sniff costume reproductions, and calculate the hypotenuse of Vivienne Leigh’s eyebrow. Climb aboard a motorized stagecoach for an exploration of a Confederate cemetery, the site of the battle of Jonesboro, and the Warren House, which served as a Union hospital during said skirmish. The tour concludes with a visit to the Stately Oaks Plantation, an ornate 1839 home that features a 7-acre park and a recipe for creating Clark Gable–strength hair gel.

Brains can soak up knowledge of the Civil War and Antebellum years starting at 11 a.m. Monday–Saturday. Complete the tour in one day, or visit the Stately Oaks Plantation on a separate occasion.

Road to Tara Museum

Located in a historic train depot in Jonesboro—the setting for Margaret Mitchell’s _Gone With the Wind_—the Road to Tara Museum assembles memorabilia and artwork inspired by the novel and its classic 1939 film adaptation. Visitors can meander past reproductions of the costumes worn by Vivien Leigh or peruse the many foreign translations of the book. The voice of Fred Crane, who played Brent Tarleton on screen, narrates sights throughout the museum, regaling with behind-the-scene tales of the movie set and Clark Gable’s mustache wax. Regular tours extend the educational experience outside the museum walls, exploring Clayton County’s various plantations and historic battlefields still littered with cork pop guns and broken water balloons
