About the East Roswell Community
Roswell, Georgia is located 22 miles north of downtown Atlanta. One of the largest cities in the state, Roswell currently has a population of approximately 95,000 people. With more than a dozen parks, several historic sites, and much more, there is no doubt why Roswell has been named one of the best places to live in the United States
East Roswell Historic District
Roswell has a complex history, including being a major geographic point during the Civil War. In the city’s 640-acre historic district, a great deal of architecture from the 19th century, including homes and factories, remains intact and can be viewed in person.
One of those homes includes Bulloch Hall, which was the childhood home of Mittie Bulloch, the mother of Theodore Roosevelt. Built in 1840, Bulloch Hall is a mansion built in the Greek revival style and has been restored with furnishings from the period.
The district boasts several more buildings that have been preserved and restored for anybody who wants to get a glimpse of this city’s fascinating past.
