Tarleton Oaks, Estate of the Day
Recently we saw a home where the owner seemed to have a Gone With The Wind obsession. They might want to know about today's home. It is in Barnesville, Georgia and belongs to Fred Crane who played Brent Tarleton in the 1939 movie. It is also is also home to a memorabilia museum and has been used as a Gone With The Wind-themed bed and breakfast. The home is on the National Historic register and was the home of a cotton magnate in the 1850s and later served as a headquarters for a Confederate militia group during the Civil War. The home is decorated in Antebellum style. It is being sold on in an auction February 11 and is estimated to bring $500,000 to $750,000. The memorabilia is being sold in separate lots on the same day and includes a huge collection of pictures, jewelry, clothing. The house may even be haunted.
