About Us

Roswell, Georgia, located just north of Atlanta, is overflowing with southern charm and a lot of things to see, do and enjoy.  On your visit to the Roswell Historic District, you can see and experience real southern hospitality; go back in time by visiting Roswell’s three historic house museums, affectionately called “A Southern Trilogy”; take in beautiful views of the Chattahoochee River; relax and play in our over 900 acres of parkland; and dine in some of the best restaurants in the state.

Simply put, the Roswell Historic District is the heart of our city! Sadly, over the years, the area’s streetscape, specifically the Canton Street area, became dirty, weedy, tired, neglected, and in much need of a face lift.  For these reasons, a group of private citizens, along with business and property owners, formed the Historic Roswell Beautification Project (HRBP), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Our Mission

HRBP’s mission is to create, preserve, and maintain the beauty and charm of our streets; improve civic pride; and enhance the overall experience of the Roswell Historic District through streetscape projects.

Since August 2016, with the cooperation of City officials, HRBP has focused on four categories of streetscape improvement:  

 

Hanging baskets and planters

 

Improving the greenspace

 

Maintenance of common spaces 

 

Tree care

 

We focus on Canton Street between Woodstock Road and Magnolia Street, but we have also made improvements to the Heart of Roswell Park, Historic Roswell Square, and Barrington Hall. Click here to see our before and after pictures!
