Based upon the latest research, this book presents the compelling story of a small frontier settlement and its development into a thriving mill village. Additionally, Mrs Snoby presents detailed genealogical research into The Colony's founding families and an introduction to the town's architecture. Roswell, Georgia, has a rich history as a 19th Century textile mill town. The six founding families brought their values, beliefs and customs from New England, Virginia, the Carolinas, and coastal Georgia to this frontier colony. Roswell's history reflects the growth and struggles of our young country after the War for Independence (Revolutionary War). It is a unique Southern town whose story is told over and over again to tourists, history lovers, children and residents. While Roswell King was building his dream among the pleasant foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, another people were struggling to survive the plans of the Federal and Georgia governments. These people were the Cherokees, who for hundreds of years, had lived and died on this tribal land. Georgia instituted a land lottery system to distribute land taken from the Cherokee Nation. Many of those who won the lottery lost interest when the gold mines no longer produced and sold their plots. The Colony of Roswell sits on such land. Roswell kIng's son, Barrington, enticed some families to invest and move to The Colony. Many of them viewed King's dream as a refuge from the sick seasonal months, when malaria and mosquitoes plagued coastal Georgia. The Colony would be a permanent haven to educate and raise their families in a secluded safe environment...until the Union troops under General William T. Sherman arrived one hot July day in 1864. Nothing would ever be the same....
