In 1830, while on a trip to North Georgia, Roswell King passed through the area and observed the great potential for building a cotton mill. Toward the middle of the 1830s, King returned to build a mill that would soon become the largest in North Georgia – Roswell Mill. Roswell Town Square was built in 1839.
