The Atlanta History Center Midtown states the following about the Margaret Mitchell House: “We explore the complex issues raised by Gone With the Wind and by Mitchell’s life as well as the popularity along with criticism of the book and film. And to understand the difference between historical fiction from historical fact, we encourage open discussion about the content of the book and film, the evidence from historical reality, and Margaret Mitchell’s life. History is not simple. Our ongoing interpretation is responsive to new research, evidence, and analysis.”
