MARIETTA - Visitors to Marietta's William Root House Museum & Garden will have the opportunity to see the home as it may have appeared at the time of the American Civil War. The house, which was used as a hospital for wounded Confederate soldiers, was abandoned by the Root family in June 1864. Left to the advancing Union Army, the home survived the burning of downtown Marietta by Union troops in November 1864. During this special exhibit, the ransacked parlor and dining room will show what the Root family may have left behind after fleeing from Marietta. Guided tours will focus on the experience of the Root family and life in Marietta during the Civil War. The exhibit is included in the cost of regular museum admission.

ABOUT THE WILLIAM ROOT HOUSE MUSEUM & GARDEN

Owned and operated by Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society, the William Root House Museum & Garden offers an authentic look at life for a middle-class Georgia family during the 1860s. The simple frame house is more typical of its time and place than the grand plantations and columned mansions popularized by Gone With the Wind.
