Roswell Mills & Old Mill Park

On the banks of Vickery Creek you will find the ruins of the Roswell Manufacturing Company Mills nestled among the trees that line the creek.  The largest mill building was constructed in 1853.  A few hundred feet down stream from that location is the site of Roswell’s first cotton mill, built in 1839.  Fire has been a constant in the mill area.  The 1839 and 1853 mills were burned by Union forces on July 7, 1864.  During Reconstruction, the 1853 mill was rebuilt and used until destroyed by fire in 1926.  The mill building seen today was a machine shop built in 1882 as an addition to the complex.
