The Roswell History Museum is located on the 2nd floor of the Roswell Cultural Arts Center at 950 Forrest Street, Roswell, Georgia. It is free and open to the public Wednesday to Saturday from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM.
Through its exhibits, in this newly created museum, the Roswell Historical Society honors its commitment to the preservation and interpretation of the diverse history of the area. Using primary documents, artifacts, and original photographs, the exhibits tell the rich and sometimes, complex and poignant stories of early inhabitants of the Roswell area, including indigenous people, colonists, mill workers, the enslaved, and farmers.
The Roswell History Museum documents the beginning of the area’s history in a permanent exhibit entitled, Roswell: The Early Years. The current rotating exhibit, Troublesome Times, explores the impact of the Civil War in Roswell.
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the museum took place on January 11, 2023
