Gone With the Wind Museum, Jefferson
While researching Jefferson, I read about The Gone With the Wind Museum, whose collection of paraphenalia from the movie of the same name was compiled over a period of twenty five years. Not only do I have the movie, but I drool over the magnificent costumes and love this story of the Old South like many other people.
