The 1845 Smith Plantation Home stands as majestically as it did over 150 years ago, with original furnishings inside and outbuildings, including slave quarters, barn, corn crib, kitchen, carriage house and old well. The home was built a mile north of what was then the blossoming town square of a little mill town known as Roswell, Georgia. Archibald Smith came here to escape the summer heat and insects of coastal Georgia, bringing his wife, children, and 30 slaves to help them run a 300-acre plus plantation.

The home contains a treasury of fine antiques, including the 1833 piano in the parlor that the Smiths moved to Valdosta when they fled Roswell during the Civil War. In the dining area, view the banquet-sized walnut dining table, original to the house, and an Empire, crotch mahogany sideboard dating about 1860. The family's letters from the Civil War period were collected into a book in 1988, by Dr. Lister Skinner and Arthur Skinner, entitled "The Death of a Confederate."
