I am a huge fan of Gone With The Wind, but I had no idea how much memorabilia was made honoring the movie. This is a self guided tour that won't take too much time, but it was interesting and worth the nominal entry fee.

The bus tours take about an hour and fifteen minutes, but can take up to an hour and a half with an optional stop at Arts Clayton Gallery. The museum is self-guided, so that's at your own pace.

Hi, We don't have any photos of the Bud English Store. You could reach out to the Georgia Archives to see if they have any photos. Their phone number is 678-364-3710. Hope this helps!
