The 'Gone With The Wind' House Is Finally Getting The TLC It Deserves

Long before Peter Bonner created his "Historical And Hysterical Tours" in Jonesboro, Georgia, he was simply a guide sharing Civil War stories for tips. These days, those stories that he says "saved him" haven't just led him into a career -- they've led him to Tara.

Known more commonly as the house from "Gone With The Wind," Tara has become the reason that Bonner drops character for a few hours a week and hunkers down in a dairy barn about 30 miles outside of Atlanta, he told HuffPost Home via phone. The facade of the iconic plantation made its way from California's Selznick Studio Lot years ago, and is being restored by Bonner in the barn.
