The Root House was built circa 1845 at the corner of Church and Lemon Streets by Hannah and William Root, early settlers of Marietta. Mr. Root was one of Marietta’s earliest merchants and its first druggist. Today the Greek Revival offers a glimpse of the home life of a middle class merchant and his family. Volunteer docents tell the story of the house, the Root family, and life in Marietta in the 1850s. Outside, visitors can view the recreated kitchen and see the working 1850s cookstove.
