The city of Roswell is named after Roswell King who settled here around 1830. Roswell built a cotton mill and a plantation but the Civil War brought destruction as Sherman ordered the burning of the mill. The Smith Plantation home, Barrington Hall, , and Bulloch Hall still stand as testaments to the plantation era surviving the fires and now lovingly restored. Bulloch Hall is most notable as the childhood home of President Theodore Roosevelt’s mother … Mittie Bulloch.
