Here, in antebellum Roswell, Georgia, a real Southern Belle grew up, was married in her family’s white-columned home, and later became the mother of a U.S. President. Here, gallant soldiers rode through the countryside. And, it was here that Union troops occupied the mansions as their headquarters and set up hospitals in the Presbyterian Church and “The Bricks” prior to the Battle of Atlanta. It is to Sherman’s credit that the magnificent homes and fine old church were not destroyed, preserving the gracious way of life to be enjoyed by generations to come.

Today, Roswell’s 640+ acres Historic District is filled with tour options:

  • Barrington Hall, recognized as one of the best examples of Greek Revival Temple Architecture in the United States;
  • Bulloch Hall, childhood home of President Theodore Roosevelt’s mother, Mittie Bulloch;
  • Smith Plantation Home, filled with period pieces belong to the original family;
  • Teaching Museum North, depicting the history of the United States, Georgia and Roswell;
  • Chattahoochee Nature Center, an oasis of wooded uplands, freshwater ponds and marshes with miles of nature trails;
  • The Faces of War Memorial, site of Georgia’s largest Memorial Day Ceremony;
  • Walking tours of Roswell’s Historic District;
  • Ghost Walks;
  • Antique shops, unique stores, restaurants to satisfy any appetite, from southern cooking to continental cuisine and of course, down-home BBQ;
