The Roswell Historical Society, established in 1971, is Roswell’s oldest historic preservation organization. Over the last forty years the Society has amassed considerable holdings of historically significant materials and artifacts which are recorded and preserved at the Research Library and Archives, and often displayed around Roswell. The Society has had many homes, including Allenbrook, the Smith Plantation, and the lower level of the old City Hall, which is currently the Visitors Center. In 2011, the Society moved to its present location on the second floor of the Roswell Cultural Arts Center, which united the Society’s office with the Research Library and Archives.
