History of Bulloch Hall
The gracious and elegant Bulloch Hall was built in Roswell, Georgia in 1839, by Major James Stephens Bulloch, one of Roswell's first settlers, and his wife Martha Stewart Elliott Bulloch.

The dining room of Bulloch Hall was the setting on December 22, 1853, for the wedding of their youngest daughter, Mittie Bulloch, to Theodore Roosevelt Sr.

Family History
Their son Theodore became the twenty-sixth President of the United States. In October 1905, he traveled through the southern states and came to Roswell especially to visit his mother's childhood home. Mittie Bulloch Roosevelt's other son, Elliott, was the father of Eleanor Roosevelt, who married Franklin D. Roosevelt and became our nation's First Lady. Eleanor visited the Hall while at Warm Springs.

Architecture of Bulloch Hall
The impressive Greek Revival structure, a Willis Ball design, has been described as one of the most significant houses in Georgia and one of the South's few examples of true temple-form architecture. The house is beautifully furnished with authentic period furniture.
