Miss Sallie’s Place
circa 1893

Two sisters, Miss Sallie Kimball and Mrs. V.L. Williams lived in this house which operated as the first boarding house in Roswell for a period of time. It had six bedrooms, each with a coal burning fireplace. Visiting ministers were welcome to come as non-paying guests. In 1919, the sisters donated land on Mimosa Boulevard to the Roswell United Methodist Church. The house was restored in 1979 as a private residence. In 1994 it was converted to a special events facility and re-named Kimball Hall.
