ROSWELL, Ga. – Roswell's finest came out June 8 to support the Bulloch Hall historic house.
This year, the money raised went toward a carriage house reconstruction, which will be used as offices for the site.
Themed around the carriage house – with plenty of horses and buggy's around – the event saw hundreds of people turn out at the Country Club of Roswell.
The annual event is held in support of the historic house, Bulloch Hall, one of the founding families of Roswell and the home of Mittie Bulloch, mother to President Teddy Roosevelt. With a silent auction as well as a live one, organizers hoped to raise $63,000 to rebuild the long-since-gone carriage house.
This year was also the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Friends of Bulloch Hall, the volunteer group that organizes many of the events in support of the historic house. Bob Hagan, Judge Tom Campbell and Roy Spencer were all honored for their efforts with the group.
