ROSWELL GA HISTORY

Roswell, GA is so named for Roswell King, an entrepreneur who discovered and invested in a plot of land along Cherokee Creek (whose name changed from Cherokee, to Vickery, to present-day name Big Creek) in the mid-1830’s.  A cotton mill was erected along a dammed section of the creek which established by Roswell King and was further improved upon and expanded by his son, Barrington King. The mill was famous for “Roswell Grey” cotton produced for Rebel troop uniforms for the Civil war. It was seized and eventually burned down by Union troops. After the war, the cotton mill was rebuilt and refurbished to continue providing wool until 1975, when it finally gave in due to a over-competitive foreign market. Currently, the Roswell Mill area is home to the Roswell town square, a hub for many shops and attractions, including historical trails, museums, memorials, and riverboat rides.

Bulloch Hall

Historic Bulloch Hall Roswell GAJames Stephens Bulloch, a business partner of Roswell King, moved to the Roswell area following the construction of the mill and had a Greek-revival mansion, dubbed Bulloch Hall, built in 1839, not far from the mill site. Bulloch fathered four children, one of which being Martha Bulloch, who would later marry Theodore Roosevelt, Sr. and thus father Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., 26th President of the United States. Bulloch hall is open to the public 7 days a week and features a bevy of cultural experiences, ranging from civil war enactments, to classes, to guided-subject tours, to ball room dancing. Bulloch Hall and it’s southern belle historical female figures were a great inspiration for Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind, thus making Bulloch Hall a must-see for any true fan.

Atlanta Historic Homes for Sale | Historic GA Homes

Atlanta historic homes and properties for sale. Find Atlanta GA historic homes, estates, older houses, mansions.  Find vintage, Victorian, Ante-bellum, Federal and craftsman homes. Buy Atlanta historic real estate: restored, preservation properties.

Looking for historic homes, and fine properties for sale in Atlanta?  Historic homes are really not easy to find, and require a lot of research!  You have to remember that many of Atlanta’s finest homes were made of wood, and they were burned by General Sherman in the Battle of Atlanta on his March to the Sea!  It is part of our history!

Cookie cutter Atlanta homes are not for everyone, and you do not have to be eclectic to own one.  Swim tennis and an active HOA did not exist around the turn of the 20th century.  Sometimes a home buyer likes to buy a home or restored property that has character and has some history to them.  These are historic homes.  They exist in the heart of every community, yet they are sought after by just a few home buyers that know the true values and worth of them.  Agents that do not know the value of them may call them “Tear downs or money pits!”  To a savvy home buyer they are a lot more. They may require a planned restoration, but they are a labor of love.

Atlanta historic homes beckon a match for historic house lovers. They are a marriage made in heaven when you find just the right property for just the right buyer.  These fine older homes are for those that would like to restore and preserve the past for this current generation and beyond.

Whether the buyers of these historic properties are into Victorian with a gabled roof, a Georgian antebellum mansion or a Federal style older home…it doesn’t matter.  These fine homes are for those historic property aficionados that appreciate older properties for their architectural uniqueness, the style of a different age, old world craftsmanship and handiwork of earlier day and time, and more often that not their location in the historic downtown epicenter.

These Atlanta and Georgia historic homes are sometimes fully restored to their past glory and yet mechanically updated and outfitted with modern conveniences without sacrificing the charm of the older home.
