Tara (the home in Gone with the Wind) only existed in Margaret Mitchell’s imagination, but she placed Tara in Clayton County where she had visited relatives who lived on a large plantation south of Jonesboro. Clayton County views itself as the home of Gone with the Wind

The plantation grounds include the main house, Juddy's Country Store, a one-room school house, cook house, and more.

Last tour begins at 3:00 pm. 

Visitors will enjoy either a pre-recorded audio tour or a costumed docent guided tour through the home. All Saturday and pre-arranged tours will be led by costumed guides.
