Bulloch Hall is a Greek Revival mansion in Roswell, Georgia, built in 1839 by free and enslaved persons for the family of Major James Stephens Bulloch, one of Roswell's first settlers and the grandson of Georgia's Revolutionary Governor, Archibald Bulloch. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the South’s few examples of true temple-form architecture. Martha Bulloch, known as Mittie, married Theodore Roosevelt, Sr. at Bulloch Hall on December 22, 1883. Theodore and Mittie were parents of the 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt, and paternal grandparents of first lady Eleanor Roosevelt.
Bulloch Hall was built by Major James Stephens Bulloch. He was a prominent planter from the Georgia coast, who was invited to the new settlement of Roswell by his friend and founder of the town, Roswell King. In 1839, Major Bulloch and his family moved to the completed house with his wife and five children and two slaves. By 1850, census records indicate that the Bulloch family owned nineteen slaves- thirteen adults and six children.
Soon Bulloch owned land for cotton production and held enslaved African-Americans to work his fields. The slaves labored on cotton and crop production or within the home.
One of Bulloch’s children, Martha Bulloch Roosevelt, married Theodore Roosevelt, Sr. at the home in 1853. The two lived in New York, where they had four children, one of which being Theodore Roosevelt who became 26th President of the United States. While President, he visited Bulloch Hall for the first time while touring the South in 1905.
This historic home is owned by the City of Roswell Georgia's Historic and Cultural Affairs Division and managed by Friends of Bulloch, Inc. The house museum features a unique children's museum room, which interprets the history of Bulloch Hall with the emphasis on the child's point of view.
