We're visiting Savannah/Atlanta this summer, and are interested in the beautiful homes there. I'm wondering whether it is better to see them each separately, or to do one of the package home tours that includes multiple properties? Thanks!

We did them on our own. Your visit to the Atlanta History Center ($16.50 last year/ Mitchell House admission is also included) will take several hours.There is much to see. We spent around five and a half hours and that included having lunch at the Swan Coach House, which is a MUST.
History buffs should make the Atlanta History Center their first stop. The center’s collections of photographs, maps, books, newspaper clippings, and decorative arts tell the history of Georgia, Atlanta, and the Southeast. In fact, the center has one of the largest collections of Civil War artifacts in the world. The Center itself is surrounded by 32 acres (13 hectares) of woodlands, including walking trails and five gardens.
Inside the Atlanta History Museum, hands-on discovery areas, displays, and photographs trace Atlanta’s history. Part of this permanent exhibit includes a fire engine used in Atlanta’s great fire of 1917 and a rare 1920 Hanson Six touring car. Another exhibit, the “Shaping Traditions: Folk Arts in a Changing South” shows the development and attributes of Southern folk art. It includes both traditional and modern forms ranging from clothing and food to singing and storytelling.
Also on the grounds of the Atlanta History Center are two must see historic homes. The Swan House, an immaculately restored 1928 house/museum, is filled with eclectic furnishings, decorative arts, and a swan emblem in every room. The Tullie Smith Farm, an antebellum mansion, evokes what life was like in Georgia in the mid-19th century.

You won't spend more than 90 minutes here. It's not a mansion, but rather a small apartment building . She lived on the ground floor for 1925- 32. The other apartments have been converted into a small museum with photos and memorabilia from the movie. Out in the yard there a very small one room house that has a few of the things that were used in the movie.
We started the day by having breakfast at Gladys Knight’s Chicken & Waffles 529 Peachtree Street, NE Tel; 404-874-9393 We parked the car in the lot that is right next to it and left it there all day.
