Take the Mimosa Hall Survey

The City of Roswell is seeking input from the Roswell Community in finding a purpose for recently purchased Mimosa Hall & Gardens.

The nine-acre antebellum estate at 127 Bulloch Avenue has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and spans 6,308 square feet. The home was originally built in 1841 for John Dunwoody, a shareholder in the Roswell Manufacturing Company. The same year, a fire caused the wooden walls to burn down, but the house was rebuilt with brick walls and completed in 1846. The home has undergone several owners throughout its tenure in Roswell, but has retained its historical character and charm making it a tremendous addition to the City’s award-winning Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs Department.

In August 2017, the home was sold to the City of Roswell, along with some of its historic furniture. Feedback from the community will aid the City in determining the best use of the home and its gardens.

The survey is available at, now until Nov. 30.
