ROSWELL – Roswell was settled in 1837 and incorporated in 1854. Just twenty minutes North of Atlanta’s perimeter, Roswell’s antebellum homes were spared the burning of General Sherman’s Civil War assault, and today are an important part of the cities historical appeal. There are a group of homes in the heart of the city that date to the cities early growth in the 1840’s and 1850’s. A popular tourist spot is Bullock Hall, built in 1840, and the home of Martha Bullock, mother of President Theodore Roosevelt.
The cities quaint square is often the setting for art and antique shows and various civic and cultural activities. Near the square is the Old Roswell Mill dating to the Civil War, and now home to business office space and small shops. At the main thoroughfare where many small antique and boutique shops and cafes line the streets, the city has recently completed a nice renovation to the street by installing landscaping, new brick paver sidewalks, period lamp post lights, and sitting benches.
Roswell Home styles are mostly two story traditional with some ranches, and some of the newer subdivisions also have European styled stucco homes and offer membership in country club facilities for homeowners. Roswell Homes for sale start in the high $200,000’s and can go well over $1 million in some small enclaves of large estate type homes that have been recently developed.
