The Castle
circa 1839

Site of the home of Roswell King, the founder of Roswell, Georgia. A now-vanished large log dwelling sheltered King, his family, and friends until their own homes could be built in the new village. He died in 1844 before building a permanent home for himself. He is buried in Founders Cemetery in Roswell.
