Description

Hidden among the trees in historic Roswell lies this elegant home constructed by one of the town's founding fathers, Archibald Smith. In 1838, the Smith family and nearly 30 of their slaves left their two plantations in St. Marys, along the southern coast of Georgia, to make a new start with some 300 acres of cotton farmland north of the Roswell Town Square. What this well-to-do 19th century farming family did not realize when they constructed their home was that it would be preserved by their descendants as an untouched treasure of Southern history. Tours of the house are offered each hour Monday through Saturday with the first tour starting at 10 a.m. and the last tour starting at 3 p.m. and Sunday with the first tour starting at 1 p.m. and the last tour starting at 3 p.m.

Closed on the following holidays:
Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day
