Stephens Bullock (1793-1849), the grandson of Governor Archibald Bulloch and an early settler in Roswell, Georgia, built Bulloch Hall in 1839. Willis Ball, the architect Bulloch hired for the project, designed the house in the Greek Revival style. It was also the childhood home of President Theodore Roosevelt's mother, Martha "Mittie" Bulloch (1835-1884). The house passed from the Bulloch family to the Howell in 1850; to the Wood family in 1872; to the Laurel Mills Manufacturing Company in 1888; to the Roberts family in 1898; and to J. B. Wing 1908. In 1971, Bulloch Hall was added to the National Register of Historic Places and became a historic house museum open to the public. It also became known as one of the three "Southern Trilogy" historic homes in Roswell, Georgia, along with Barrington Hall and the Archibald Smith Plantation Home.
