The Slave Dwelling Project Conference

Our Communications Director, Dr. Sara Harwood, will be speaking about Mimosa Hall at the 2018 Slave Dwelling Project Conference in Murfreesboro, TN this October. The Slave Dwelling Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, assists property owners in preserving and interpreting extant slave dwellings. The organization is well-known for operating "Overnight Stays" and interpretive programs in historic structures. The conference brings together stewards of historic properties, students, faculty, and practitioners of public history.  Dr. Harwood is looking forward to sharing the research that she has done on the enslaved persons who lived at Mimosa Hall.

Friends of Mimosa Hall & Gardens is fundraising to install a proprietary thin-paneled solar roof on the house, which will lower the City of Roswell's energy bill by $5000/year and make Mimosa the oldest Net Zero building in the country.
