Photography by Josh Meister
The dining room of Bulloch Hall was the setting on December 22, 1853, of the wedding of their youngest daughter, Mittie Bulloch, to Theodore Roosevelt Sr. The new Mr. and Mrs. Roosevelt were entertained at homes in Roswell for several days after the wedding. The couple lived in New York City where they raised their family of four children Anna, Corinne, Theodore, and Elliott.
Their son Theodore became the twenty-sixth President of the United States. In October 1905, he traveled through the southern states and came to Roswell specifically to visit his mother’s childhood home. Mittie and Thee’s other son, Elliott, was the father of Eleanor Roosevelt, who married Franklin D. Roosevelt and became our nation’s First Lady. Eleanor visited Bulloch Hall while at Warm Springs.
