Lynn B. Friedman This is something I would enjoy.  Gone With The Wind is one of my favorite movies.  I first saw it when I was 11 and fell in love with Clark Gable (who didn't?)  Such rich history here.

This is great information. I didn't realize that one admission will get you into special exhibits at the campus. Thanks so much for sharing. Atlanta is only an hour from me, so I think a visit to this fabulous place is due soon!
