HISTORIC HOME MUSEUMS

HISTORY

A Southern Trilogy HISTORIC HOME MUSEUMS OF ROSWELL

The Southern Story is a rich, dramatic collection of complex and compelling facts, ideas, myths, and mysteries: Native Americans, railroads, slavery, politics, agriculture, war, shipping, reconstruction, aristocracy, civil rights, and technology. Here in Roswell, Georgia - situated just 20 miles north of Atlanta - three historic homes speak volumes about the history of the American South from 1838 to the present. Barrington Hall, Bulloch Hall and Smith Plantation, a trio of antebellum museum homes, are open to the public for visits and exploration. Closely situated as neighbors in the historic town of Roswell, each home has its own cultural bounty to share - and its own part of the Southern Trilogy Story - to tell.

BULLOCH HALL

The Authentic Story of the American South... Tours Mon-Sat: 10am-3pm; Sun 1-3pm Tours on the hour, last one at 3 p.m. Closed on major holidays. southerntrilogy.com BARRINGTON HALL {1842} Roswell’s Founding Family 535 Barrington Drive 770.640.3855

BARRINGTON HALL

10

In the 1830s, Roswell King and his son, Barrington, co-founded the colony now known as Roswell. Barrington built his home on the highest point, overlooking the town. Today, this home is recognized as one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture in the country. It’s also listed as one of Atlanta’s visitroswellga.com


50 Most Beautiful Homes. Barrington Hall has the only Antebellum Garden in metro Atlanta that is open to the public. This home’s front parlor invites visitors to sit a spell, play period games and enjoy the ambiance of this beautiful home. BULLOCH HALL {1839} A Love Story...and so much more 180 Bulloch Avenue; 770.992.1731 Built by Major James Stephens Bulloch, grandson of Georgia’s Revolutionary Governor, Archibald Bulloch, this home is one of the most significant houses in Georgia. It was here in her childhood home that Mittie Bulloch met a young man from the prominent Roosevelt family of New York. She captured his heart and they wed at Christmastime in 1853. This was the union that produced U.S. President, Teddy Roosevelt. The couple’s other son, Elliott, fathered Eleanor, who became the wife of Franklin and the nation’s most beloved First Lady. It was she who forever changed the role of women in the White House. There’s no mystery why Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone with the Wind, sought out the last living bridesmaid and wrote extensively about the wedding for the Atlanta Constitution Magazine. Bulloch’s reconstructed slave cabin, with its living quarters and exhibits, provides opportunities to explore and recognize the role of African-American slaves in the history of Roswell.

acre plantation. Tragedy struck when Smith’s eldest son, Willie, was killed during the Civil War. Perhaps it was Willie’s death that caused the family to hold tight to their other possessions. Whatever the reason, Smith Plantation is filled with the family’s original artifacts. See how time has altered this home from the time of slaves working in the fields to a very different day in 1986 when the family’s descendants sold the house to the City of Roswell on the strict condition that the family’s maid, Mamie Cotton, be allowed to live in the house for the remainder of her life.

SMITH PLANTATION {1845} Success, Family Tragedy, & Change 935 Alpharetta St. 770.641.3978 In an effort to escape the insects and summer heat of coastal Georgia, Archibald Smith traveled to Roswell in 1845 with his wife, children and thirty slaves. They built their home on a 300+ SMITH PLANTATION

NATURE-OUTDOORS

NATURE & OUTDOORS Nature & Outdoors ROSWELL IS LOCATED ON THE northern banks of the Chattahoochee River in an area once called “Enchanted Land.” “As you explore some of our wooded trails, remember you are entering the home of a people who once lived a way of life that might seem foreign to us now. Somewhere near you stands a tree from whose “grandfather-tree” a bow was carved – and from another, an arrow. From other trees within your view came “aspirin” and “pasta and tough dependable cordage … all from the inner bark.” There was a day when this knowledge was known to every man, woman and child. These were the Native Americans who once inhabited the land.” {Mark Warren}.

Explore Roswell with a hike, stroll, or by canoe, kayak, or raft. Keep a pair of binoculars handy for bird watching and perhaps a journal to log the flora and fauna you will find along the way. BIG CREEK PARK Trails for mountain biking and hiking. Big Creek Park trails link with the Alpharetta Greenway for extended enjoyment.

CRAFT BREWERIES

A LITTLE TIME FOR THE ADULTS

CRAFT BREWERIES

Craft Breweries making Roswell home...

ABBEY OF THE HOLY GOATS {opening 2016} 4000 Northfield Way; 470-282-1444; abbeyoftheholygoats.com; Abbey of the Holy Goats is a small-scale craft brewery coming March 2016 to Roswell. The first female-owned Brewery in Georgia, founder Kathy Davis decided either to start a goat farm in some remote wilderness or pursue her passion of producing her award-winning Belgian-style beers for the public. The brewery won out, and Abbey of the Holy Goats was born. The Abbey will produce innovative Belgian-style beers designed for perfect food pairing. Davis said the name, Abbey of the Holy Goats, encompasses many of her interests in life. “The name comes from my interest in abbeys as far as living in them, and the beer styles, and the goats come from my love of goats. And, of course, it’s also a play on the words ‘holy ghost.’ The monastic lifestyle is still something that really interests me. No matter what religion you follow, it’s always a wonderful thing to endeavor towards.” Follow them on Facebook for grand opening details and specials. GATE CITY BREWING {now open!} 43 Magnolia Street 678-404-0960 gatecitybrewingco.com; The name is rooted in neighboring Atlanta’s historical moniker as the “Gate City of the New South” due to its reputation as a hub for culture, commerce and transportation. At Gate City the founders—Pat Rains, Brian Borngesser and Garrett Nail-- are Roswell residents themselves. Rains says, “We strive to brew beers that embody the very same independent spirit that inspired us to chase our dreams of opening Roswell’s first craft brewery. This is our home, where we’re raising our families; and we see it as a great privilege and tremendous honor to be a part of this community.” The brewery opened with two beers 30

– the “Copperhead” amber ale and the “1864” IPA. The Copperhead Ale is a medium-bodied American Amber flavored with Pacific Northwest hops with a copper color and crisp finish. 1864 IPA is an approachable American IPA, which offers a slightly fruity nose and a very drinkable hop flavor. Rains said there are plans for several more in the works. There will be four year-round beers with some specialty and seasonal beers as well. VARIANT BREWERY {opening late 2016/ early 2017} facebook.com/variantbrewingcompany Variant is in the early planning stages, targeting late 2016 to open its doors, bringing the total of breweries in Roswell to three. Matt Curling, Variant’s owner and Brewmaster says the focus “…will be on variety rather than quantity so the smaller fermenters will allow us to explore some more experimental recipes.” The brewery will be located in Roswell very near to the Canton Street scene. They’ve acquired a 3,600 square feet building where most of the space will be dedicated to their brewhouse. Initially Variant will start with a 7-barrel system with a couple 7-barrel fermenters and brite tank as well as a couple 3.5-barrel fermenters and a brite tank. Curling continues, “Our goal is to push the limits of craft beer by modifying traditional recipes and experimenting with various adjuncts, unique grain bills, hop schedules and yeasts to create a wide variety of unique drinking experiences.” drinkvariant.com; facebook.com/drinkvariant
