                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: Bob is an attorney and Karen an interior designer. Karen operated a design studio in the Mill House before converting it back to its original use as a residence for mill workers and their families. She kept the interior architecture open and modern while embracing the historical preservation guidelines.

                  Why the Owner Chose Roswell:
                  A very unique location and historical feeling. You can see the town square at the top of the street where weddings and special events are held every weekend surrounded by restaurants. A covered bridge next to the Roswell Mill is across the street. The ruins of the old Roswell Mill burned in the Civil War Battle of Atlanta are part of the extensive hiking trails.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Perfect for wedding parties, reunions, executive housing or family visits. Close to events and restaurants. Near GA 400 for 25 minute car ride to down town Atlanta. Two blocks from Church Street where the ten churches have weddings every weekend. Quiet street and hiking into the Chattahoochee Forest Preserve. Two antebellum mansions on the square and Smith Plantation a mile away open for touring.
