The Old Bricks

Erected in 1839 for workers in the Roswell Cotton Mill, these appartments were the first built in the South and are believed to be the oldest in the United States.

They served briefly as a hospital for wounded Federal soldiers in 1864.

The Roswell Library Association was formed in 1955 to purchase, preserve, and restore this building; to provide at the same time ample library facilities for the community.
