Welcome To

Roswell

Roswell’s unique history, convivial atmosphere, and convenient commute.

Welcome to Roswell

A 19th-century cotton mill village ages gracefully into a modern treasure.
 
Established in the 1830s, Roswell’s early settlers rose to prominence on cotton planted and milled locally, making it a solid target and subsequently a firm stronghold for Sherman in 1864. Existing quietly for the next century, Roswell’s current resurgence began in the late 1980s and now the city is widely celebrated for both its restoration efforts and future planning.
 
A fixture on lists touting the country’s most livable communities, Roswell’s unique history, convivial atmosphere, great schools, and convenient commute bolster the draw of this enchanting locale.
