Just 20 miles away from downtown Atlanta, Roswell, Georgia is the eighth largest city in the state, one of the fifteen cities in Fulton County. Roswell King established the Roswell Manufacturing Company, building a mill which harnessed the power of the local rivers to make textiles. The city was founded by King, and later named for him. In 1864, Union General W.T. Sherman ordered his soldiers to torch the King Mill. The mill was rebuilt, only to be burned to the ground by lightning. Undaunted, the mill was rebuilt for the third time. The inventor of the sewing machine was an early resident of Roswell. Dr. Francis Goulding was also an author of children’s books, and, unfortunately is not associated with the sewing machine because he failed to obtain a patent.
The City of Roswell is home to twenty-two picturesque parks, and has been chosen twice by Atlanta Magazine as the best place to live in the Atlanta Metro area. According to City Crime Rankings, Roswell has been ranked on more than one occasion as one of the safest cities to live in the U.S. Roswell is easily accessible via the Georgia 400 corridor, and is within fifty miles of several well-known colleges and trade schools.
