Roswell officially became a city in 1854, though it was founded by Roswell King in 1839. King established the Roswell Manufacturing Company in this area in the early 1830s and built a mill to harness the power of the local rivers to make textiles. It is now Georgia’s eighth-largest city, and has been chosen twice by Atlanta Magazine as the best place to live in the Metro Atlanta area.
