MUSEUM COLLECTION

Scarlett O'Hare Mourning Bonnet
Premier Piece: Mourning Bonnet Worn by Scarlett O'Hara

NO OTHER COLLECTION IS QUITE LIKE THIS ONE

The Gone With The Wind Remembered Museum is a not-for-profit company. It contains one of the most comprehensive and extensive collections of GWTW memorabilia in the world.  

Vicky Lynn Rogers has been collecting these items for over 30 years.  There are a number of original one-of-a-kind pieces as well as items that are extremely rare including one of the most iconic costume pieces from the movie, the mourning bonnet worn by Scarlett O’Hara.

The museum is a state of the art, climate controlled, specially lighted and spacious facility.

As the world renowned film nears its 80th Anniversary, book and movie fans alike are able to journey back in time and experience the history of a civil war novel that was published in 43 languages and in 53 countries, and a movie that changed filmmaking for all time.

All over the world, the book and film have influenced peoples’ ideas about southern history. We hope you will reminisce with us and savor what you see.

GWTW PROPS

Props and memorabilia fill the museum to its limits, lining the walls, drawers, and even the ceilings. Props include actual call sheets from the film’s production, as well as numerous pieces of costuming and accessories and displays in tribute to Butterfly McQueen and Hattie McDaniel (the first African American to be nominated and win an Academy Award).
MARGARET MITCHELL

MARGARET MITCHELL

The museum pays tribute to Margaret Mitchell, the author of Gone With The Wind.  She wrote only one book, being one of the most successful books of all times.  This book was the catalyst for the movie, which won ten academy awards and is still one of the top grossing films when discounted for inflation.

MEMORABILIA

Memorabilia includes a theater seat from the premiere of GWTW in the now razed Atlanta Loew’s Theatre in 1939, tickets from the event, a number of displays featuring signatures from  cast members, and even a telegram from Vivien Leigh.

OTHER ORIGINALS:

The Ona Munson Jacket and Muff from Gone With The Wind, worn by the star as “Belle Watling” in the scene where she visits “Rhett Butler” in jail. This was the costume designer, Walter Plunker’s favorite costume from the film.

The original Isabel Jewel “Emmy Slattery” period jacket from Gone With the Wind, designed by Walter Plunkett.

Gone With The Wind Dolls

This is the highlight of the GWTW Remembered museum for “Windy” fanatics, or any aficionado of dolls or Victorian dresses. The collection of GWTW dolls is by far the most valuable and rare part of this entire museum, as it contains almost every doll made after (and even some made before GWTW premiered). Most of the 600+ dolls are Madame Alexander’s, and the rest are from other doll makers, all in mint condition.
Gone With The Wind Gifts

GIFT SHOP

The gift shop has hundreds of GWTW and related items that are available for purchase. There are both vintage and new products from which to choose: dolls, figurines, books, key chains, magnets, t-shirts, artwork, and many other treasures.
Herb Bridges and General Cleburne

HERB BRIDGES

The museum pays tribute to Herb Bridges (1929-2013).  He wrote, co-authored or edited seven books about Gone With The Wind. Herb’s knowledge and enthusiasm for the novel and the film was unmatched. He was the ultimate authority on all things Gone With The Wind.

GENERAL CLEBURNE CONNECTION TO GWTW

There is a display about General Patrick Cleburne, the namesake for the city of Cleburne, Texas.  You will see his very rare original signature. You will also learn about the Cleburne connection to GWTW.

CIVIL WAR ARTIFACTS

Since the Civil War is such a pivotal aspect of GWTW, we thought it appropriate to include a display dedicated to the event.  Also documents with the original signatures of Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis are a part of the collection.
