935 Alpharetta St.
Roswell, GA 30075
Hidden among the trees in Historic Roswell lies this elegant home constructed by one of the town's founding fathers, Archibald Smith. Built in 1838, this perfectly preserved plantation includes the Smith's two-story farm house complete with outbuildings that include slave quarters, a cook house, a corn crib, a barn, a carriage house, a well and a spring house. Three generations of the Archibald Smith family lived in the home and saved all of their belongings - large and small, important and trivial, broken or whole. The home and grounds have become one of the best examples of architectural, cultural and historical interpretation found in the region.
