The home was sold to the City of Roswell in 1986 and opened to the public as a house museum in 1992.

  • Amazing place I would highly reccomend. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Staff was very knowledgeable and really interesting. If you like history, nice people and lots of photo opps, you'll love it!
  • *Affordable for large families. AAA discount and -$1 for kiddos. CASH ONLY. :)* •This was a neat little plantation tour. Loads of information about the Civil War and the Smith family. We we're a party of 12 with 7 kiddos. Our guide was very friendly and great with answering our kiddos questions. Very patient. We loved walking around and seeing all the original works of the home. Beautiful home and grounds. Must see! When the guided tour was done she led us outside to tour on our own. She did warn us that there have been sightings of copperhead snakes which I personally appreciated since we had little ones with us. (We didn't have an issue with seeing them). Don't pass this place up. You will enjoy. :)
