Marietta Gone With the Wind Museum debuts exclusive new collection

Feb. 24—The Marietta Gone With the Wind Museum, located at historic Brumby Hall and Gardens, announced it will be the home to an exclusive new collection of artifacts from the Academy Award winning motion picture, Gone With the Wind.

This exclusive exhibit is owned by Vicky Lynn Rogers who has been collecting these items for over 30 years. Rogers currently owns and operates the Gone With the Wind Remembered Museum in Cleburne, Texas.

The Marietta Gone With the Wind Museum will exhibit several original 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, played by Vivien Leigh. There are also one-of-a-kind pieces including the Shantytown dress and Rhett Butler's jacket, played by Clark Gable.

The collection includes the original Dan Sayre Groesbeck painting which hung in Loews Lobby during the premier of Gone With the Wind on Dec. 15, 1939. The museum will also be home to the six original Walter Plunkett costume sketches which include Scarlett's iconic green BBQ dress.

The museum will continue to pay tribute to Margaret Mitchell, the author of Gone With the Wind, and her impact on her community and the literary world to this day.
