Determining the titleholder for Roswell’s oldest building is a delightful puzzle. Two strong contenders hold a special place in the city’s history: Bulloch Hall: This Greek Revival mansion, built in 1839, is undeniably grand. It was the childhood home of Martha Bulloch Roosevelt, mother of President Theodore Roosevelt. Primrose Cottage: Built around 1840, this charming structure might hold the title for the first permanent home in the Roswell colony.

While Bulloch Hall boasts grandeur and a presidential connection, Primrose Cottage whispers of Roswell’s humble beginnings. Regardless of the official title, both structures offer a wonderful look into Roswell’s intriguing past.
