Roswell GA is located about 30 miles north of the Atlanta Hartsfield International airport, making it one of the closer-in northern suburbs. Its proximity to Atlanta business and cultural attractions make it a popular place to live. What really sets it apart though it a unique historical identity. Roswell was founded in the 1830s around a cotton mill. Parts of the mill and surrounding village still stand, and Roswell is proud of its southern history. Canton Street on the west side of Roswell has become a destination for dining, art galleries and shopping and attracts people from all over for its monthly Roswell Alive event (April-October). Other events throughout the year celebrate arts, music and history.
Another feature that attracts residents and visitors to Roswell is an unparalleled parks and recreation system. Roswell Parks & Rec boasts over 900 acres (and growing) of parks, a border on the Chattahoochee River, plenty of bike lanes and a robust sports and activities schedule.
- Bulloch Hall, part of the trinity of historic homes in downtown Roswell, was the childhood home of Teddy Roosevelt’s mother Mittie Bulloch. Every December she is celebrated by a reenactment of her wedding in the home.
- Besides its name, Roswell GA shares little in common with Roswell NM – 1300 miles to the west. Roswell GA has almost twice as many residents for one thing. And no UFOs for another.
- Roswell GA is however known for paranormal activity. An evening with the very popular Roswell ghost tour will teach you about the spirits that haunt the city as well as some interesting civil war and cotton mill history.
- One long-loved gallery in Roswell, Anne Jackson gallery, features artwork by Dr Seuss.
