Gone With the Wind Museum
If you’re still pining for historic ties to the Old South, drop by the campy and somewhat strange Scarlett O’Hardy’s Gone with the Wind Museum (408 Taylor St., 903/665-1939, www.scarlettohardy.com, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Thurs.–Sat., $3 adults, $1 children 12 and under). The jam-packed museum contains everything imaginable related to the classic film, including posters, photos, costume reproductions, dolls, and seats from the Atlanta theater where the movie premiered in 1939.
Perhaps most interesting is the collection of autographs from the movie’s stars, most notably Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, Leslie Howard, Hattie McDaniel, and Butterfly McQueen.
