Historic Roswell GA ~ a Favorite Community just north of Atlanta

Please  “Like” or comment if this Blog is helpful…..

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.

Let’s take a stroll downtown Roswell today.  Bistros, art galleries, boutiques, and fine dining are enjoyed by both locals and tourists alike.  Whatever your palette choice might be you can likely find it along Canton Street. Image

Looking for a good home in Roswell? Are you thinking of moving to the Atlanta vicinity?

The city of Roswell has redeveloped much of the area to afford newer townhomes within an easy walk to downtown Roswell. But, if it is a single family home you most desire, you’ll have to act quickly as home within a few blocks of downtown Roswell are few and rarely become available.

There is something for every price level.  The corporate executive buyer might enjoy the country club developments or a private luxury gated estate.  A first time buyer or move up buyer has plenty of opportunities to live  in close proximity to the incredible Parks that Roswell provides. Image

Miles of biking paths follow the Chattahoochee River corridor where weekenders pedal in tandem and families gather for a picnic in the park or raft  the river on a hot summer day.  There’s Frisbee Golf, mountain biking, water parks and dog parks.  And of course there is the traditional baseball and soccer fields where tots and teens alike play ball yearlong as the temperatures are most often moderate.

Quality of life and school excellence has swelled Roswell’s population in recent years to about 88,000.  Roswell H.S. and Centennial HS serve the public sector while a multitude of private schools serve both special needs and church denominations.

Historic Roswell is simply one of the most sought after areas of North Atlanta.  Located just 10min. north of the 285 perimeter, housing is affordable, schools are good, and commute time to the airport is a manageable 40minutes in non-traffic hours.  So arrange your schedule to leave between 6:30 -6:45am depending on your surface streets and you will experience an easy morning commute.
