Description

Visitors to Marietta's William Root House Museum & Garden will have the opportunity to see the home as it may have appeared at the time of the American Civil War. The house, which was used as a hospital for wounded Confederate soldiers, was abandoned by the Root family in June 1864. Left to the advancing Union Army, the home survived the burning of downtown Marietta by Union troops in November 1864. During this special exhibit, the ransacked parlor and dining room will show what the Root family may have left behind after fleeing from Marietta. Guided tours will focus on the experience of the Root family and life in Marietta during the Civil War. The exhibit is included in the cost of regular museum admission.
