Bulloch Hall

The gracious and elegant Bulloch Hall was built in Roswell, Georgia in 1839 by Major James Stephens Bulloch one of Roswell’s first settlers and grandson of Governor Archibald Bulloch, and his wife Martha Stewart Elliott Bulloch, daughter of General Daniel Stewart.\r\n\r\nThe dining room of Bulloch Hall was the setting on December 22, 1853 of the wedding of their youngest daughter, Mittie Bulloch, to Theodore Roosevelt (Sr.). The new Mr. and Mrs. Roosevelt were entertained at homes in Roswell for several days after the wedding. The couple lived in New York City where they raised their family of four children Anna, Corinne, Theodore, and Elliott. \r\n\r\nSon Theodore became the twenty-sixth President of the United States. In October 1905, he traveled through the southern states and came to Roswell especially to visit his mother’s childhood home. Mittie Bulloch Roosevelt\'s other son, Elliott, was the father of Eleanor Roosevelt who married Franklin D. Roosevelt and became our nation’s first lady. Eleanor visited the Hall while at Warm Springs.
