Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name by Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind swept the 12th Annual Academy Awards held February 12, 1940.
With its wonderful Technicolor photography and its memorable performances by Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable and Hattie McDaniel (Mammy), Gone with the Wind is regarded as one of the greatest films of all times.
Although the O´Hara family plantation was a Hollywood facade, you can see a 1941 replica at 5705 St. Charles Street. The gleaming white house with those olive green shutters, luscious garden and massive columns, perfectly resembles the beautiful Southern house from the classic film.
With a large collection of imposing antebellum mansions, magnificent gardens, elegant restaurants and antique shops, the historic Garden District is one of the most beautiful and pleasant neighbourhoods in New Orleans.
I have been in love with this house since I was 15 years old and that was a very long time ago.
Does anyone know if it is a private residence and are visitors allowed in?
Hi! I think it´s a private residence. I would have loved to have the opportunity to see the interior design of the mansion. Kisses and hugs!
Hi Rakel, great site!
I just ran across your page. This is my friend’s family house. Their father grew up there and he just passed and it’s mentioned in his obit. Just FYI:
Thanks so much for sharing it with me. I feel terribly sorry for the loss of Jared, my heart is with you and his family. I really loved his house. With its stunning architecture and wonderful garden, Jared´s gleaming white house definitely transports you to a bygone era. Please send my regards to his family. Lots of love,
