1. Hembree Farm Marker
Inscription. In the 1830s, Amariah Hembree brought his family here from South Carolina to farm the former Cherokee lands. His son, James, a carpenter, built this house. James’ brother Elihu and his descendants lived on this land for 8 generations. They raised cotton for the Roswell Manufacturing Company, corn sorghum, and livestock. The Lebanon Baptist Church was organized here in 1836. Elihu’s grave is adjacent to the house. In 2007, a Hembree descendant gifted one acre of the original homestead, with house, detached kitchen, and corn cribs to the Roswell Historical Society.
 
Erected by The Roswell Historical Society.
