'Gone With The Wind' Items May Have Been Destroyed In Fire

Posted: Updated:

STOCKBRIDGE, Ga. — Museum officials are waiting to see whether memorabilia from the classic film "Gone with the Wind" was ruined when a fire heavily damaged the facility near Atlanta where it was stored.

Rebekah Cline with the Clayton County Convention and Visitors Bureau says the Road to Tara Museum in Henry County has a storage unit on the lower level of the facility, while the fire broke out on the upper level. But she says firefighters said all the units had sustained some degree of fire, smoke or water damage.

Cline says the unit housed collectible posters from the 1939 premier and promotional paintings. But she says the museum's most valuable treasures are at the museum. They include costumes, a signed first-edition copy of the book and an original movie script.
