    Bulloch HallBulloch Hall Roswell, Georgia
    Bullock Hall is a Greek revival mansion in Roswell, Georgia that was constructed in 1839 and one of the most historical significant homes in the city and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is here that Martha Bulloch Roosevelt, the mother of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president, would live as a child, and where she would marry, Theodore Roosevelt, Sr. The hall had been constructed by Martha's father, Major James Stephens Bulloch, a prominent planter from the coast who had been invited to the area by his friend Roswell King. After his first wife, Hester Amarintha Elliot, passed on, Bulloch would marry the widow of his first wife's father, Martha Stewart Elliot and had four children that would pass on before reaching adulthood. The family would move here in 1839, and it wasn't long before Bulloch bought land for cotton production and slaves to work the fields. The 1850 slave schedules show that Martha Stewart Elliot Bulloch, who had been widowed a second time, owned 31 slaves, who would labor mostly on the cotton and crop productions, with a few working in the mansion as domestic slaves. In 1835, Martha went to Harford, Connecticut for a visit, when James' wife gave birth to a daughter, that would also be named Martha, but affectionately called, Mittie, who would be raised at Bulloch Hall. Theodore Roosevelt, Sr. was about 19 at the time and came to visit with a friend, Hilborne West, who had married Mittie's half sister, Susan Elliot, but Martha didn't care for him much. They would meet again in Philadelphia in 1853, and fall in love, marry in the dining room of the Bulloch in December, 1853, with folks coming from miles around.
