A free program on the historic Root House of Marietta is scheduled for Saturday, October 26, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at East Cobb Library. Registration is required.
Docent Pamela Cole and her team will be dressed in period costume with their traveling trunk to show a “day in the life” 150 years ago of the Root family. Built in about 1845 by early settlers, the Root House was home for Hannah and William Root, one of Marietta’s earliest merchants and first druggist.
A property of the Cobb Landmarks and Historical Society, the Root House Museum includes the organization’s headquarters, a store featuring historic books and gifts, and a garden designed to be representative of mid-19th century gardening practices.
The Root House Museum is located at Polk Road and North Marietta Loop, near the Marietta Square. East Cobb Library is at 4880 Lower Roswell Road, Suite 510-B, Marietta 30068.
