Saturday, April 18, in conjunction with the premiere of the new Peter Bonner Gone With The Wind Tour, was proclaimed Peter Bonner Day.

The Peter Bonner Gone With The Wind Tour was penned by local historian and author, Peter Bonner. The Peter Bonner Gone With The Wind Tour is a narrated 70-minute tour aboard a climate controlled mini-bus. This tour highlights the stories from Jonesboro and Clayton County which parallel those in Gone With The Wind. The recorded audio is Peter Bonner’s own voice, along with music and sound effects, recounting the stories that he has been telling since 1996. Peter Bonner’s Gone With The Wind tour is the only one of its kind anywhere. It is only fitting that the tour takes place in Jonesboro/ Clayton County, the only place to have the designation the Official Home of Gone With The Wind as designated by Stephens Mitchell, Margaret’s brother, and by the Georgia Legislature.

The tour departs from the Road to Tara Museum and Visitors Center in the historic Jonesboro train depot at 104 N. Main Street, Jonesboro, GA 30236. Visitors interested in reservations should call 770-478-4800 or email
