Lost Mill Workers of Roswell
In addition to the monument to the Lost Mill Workers, the park provides a great place for children to play.

On July 7, 1864, General Sherman ordered everyone connected with the Roswell Mills to be charged with treason. Mill workers were rounded up on the square where they waited a day before being sent to the Georgia Military Institute in Marietta. There, they were housed with other women and children from other mills. From there, they were put on trains, bound for the north. Many of the women were put out just north of the Ohio River in Kentucky.

A block east of the Roswell Town Square is a small park on Sloan Street with a monument dedicated to the memory of the 400 women mill workers and children. Some of the women eventually returned to Roswell, but some of the women's fates remain an unsolved mystery.
