Shop ‘til You Drop
Downtown Roswell has something for everyone, especially if you’re looking for a unique gift for someone special or that hard-to-buy-for colleague or friend. Many shops offer unique, one-of-a-kind finds from clothing, home decor, and so much more. Plus, for those looking for antiques and collectibles, the Downtown Roswell scene is one of the top places in Atlanta to score a deal.
One of the great things about the South is the classic architecture that still defines our way of life, albeit with more modern amenities. Classical plantation homes like Barrington Hall and Archibald Smith Plantation Home offer visitors a look back at how life was lived in the antebellum South and how things have evolved since the Civil War. It’s the perfect time of year to go as several of Downtown Roswell’s historic homes including Barrington Hall and the Founders Hall have free access for the month of July.
Another venue to visit in Roswell is Old Mill Park, which is the site of the former Roswell Manufacturing Company Mills, one of two mills destroyed by Union forces during the Civil War. Today, it’s a park filled with trails and a coved pedestrian bridge that allows visitors a place to relax and enjoy being outdoors.
