Roswell was founded during the Georgia Gold Rush, when Roswell King realized that the area's rivers and creeks would help forge considerable business opportunities. Specifically, he had a cotton mill in mind. So, King and several other influential families relocated to the area, built the largest textile mill in North Georgia, gorgeous mansions, a school, a Presbyterian Church, the town center, and a mill village - all sites that still draw historians and sightseers today.Located 20 miles north of Atlanta on the beautiful Chattahoochee River and Vickery Creek, Roswell offers a small-town atmosphere with big-city amenities.  With more than 100 listings on the National Historic Register, Roswell has successfully fused old and new.  The historical city center has become a vibrant area with...

In the month of September there were four active listings in the Inverness subdivision ranging in price from $425,900 to $449,900.  There were eleven listings that did not sell before their listing term expired.  In addition, there were five listings withdrawn prior to the completion of the listing term.  The Inverness subdivision in September continues to show an impact of a shifting market.  As a result pricing pressure will remain for listings to get under contract.Overall in Atlanta, last quarter 56% of homes did not sell.  Of the 44% that did sell, 34% had a price reduction, leaving 16% that sold without a price reduction.  For those that had a price reduction, the average days on the market (DOM) was 140 days.  Of the 16% that did sell with no price reduction they spent aproximate...

Exciting plans are in the works for the new community called "Roswell East".  Roswell East will create a new way of life and a new sense of place in Roswell. It combines the best of Roswell's past and future. This 107-acre community will take its cues from the original design of Roswell's founders as a walkable, live-workplay community. Historic Roswell was founded around a town square with a variety of shops and a mix of housing types, including some of the first apartments in the U.S.The new Roswell East follows this historic layout, adding a focus on the environment that preserves more than 50 percent of the land as green or open space, enhances traffic flow and increases the value of the development for the city.Current plans for Roswell East call for:More than half the land to be p...

Friends of mine invited me out to The Swallow at the Hollow in Roswell this Friday night. Unfortunately, I have family visiting from out of state Friday night and cannot enjoy the food and entertainment.  Thought I would pass along something that you all may want to do this weekend in Roswell. If you like barbeque and country music, you should check this place out!  I'm not a huge barbeque fan nor country music fan but sometimes it's quite entertaining to do something out of the ordinary to see just what else is going on in Roswell!  If you are a frequent visitor of The Swallow at the Hollow - please send me a comment or something!  This Friday and Saturday night (Aug 3-4) their entertainment is from The Redneck Yacht club with Sherrie Ausin as guest.  Again - due to not being a country...

Is a picture really worth a thousand words? If you have found yourself with little time for reading these days, you will love Roswell, Georgia's newest print publication - SNAP Roswell.I've had the opportunity to meet members of SNAP Roswell (Craig and Paul) at the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce as well as a banquet held for the Roswell Junior Woman's Club.  Camera in hand, these fellows are ready to freeze a moment in time for our Roswell community.  The concept of this paper is to capture the community with pictures.  Definitely a quick read as you skim the pages of picture after picture and light copy.  They are so new to the area that our SNAP Roswell July 2007 issue is the 1st!    The SNAP Roswell July 2007 issue covered local activities with the Greater North Fulton of C...

Don't look now but BusinessWeek has put out another List.  BusinessWeek has the uneviable task of coming up with only 20 suburbs in the North and 20 in the south that are affordable.   I'm not entirely sure how Roswell made it into the top 20 or how other cities in Georgia missed the cut, but I certainly feel slighted here.  Roswell is a great community, don't get me wrong, but there are several communities in Georgia such as Duluth, Lawrenceville, Dacula, Suwanee, Alpharetta, Buford, Kennesaw, that have equal or better options than the ones the selected from NC, SC or AL.Yes, I am bias, I have no qualms admitting that,  I guess I expected a more thorough analysis coming from a magazine that basically just wanted to publish a slide show, but come on, Tyler,TX - ?  Weston, FL?  How any c...

Roswell Georgia is a historic mill town with a great history from the Civil War until present.  Roswell Georgia is located just north Atlanta and embraces the Chattahoochee River.  You can almost imagine living here over a hundred years ago..;lush greenery,  sitting by the banks of the slow moving Chattahoochee River, and even tossing a fishing line to catch tonight's dinner!  It must have been the place to be!  From City Hall, to the Roswell Mill, Roswell Square, Canton Street, and historic Bulloch Hall which was the childhood home of President Theodore Roosevelts mother.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          ...
