Surprised to discover so much of GWTW was drawn from Margaret's own life. Her own personal story is worth a movie by itself. Small venue but terrific stories.

It's her house that's been turned into a museum. You get to see how she lived and how she became the author of this classic.

There is a small parking lot in front of the house. There are also other businesses that use it as well but we didn’t have any trouble finding a spot.
