Cobb Landmarks have implemented some changes in place for visitors to follow during the COVID-19 pandemic. Guests visiting the museum will check in at the visitors center located inside the 1830s Manning Family Cabin. They will be given a stylus pen that can be used to view the museum's interactive touch screens.
While visitors will be allowed to explore the museum at their own pace, they will be asked to practice social distancing and allow for enough space to enter and leave exhibit spaces. Once guests are done with their tours, they should return the stylus pens so they can be sanitized.
William and Hannah Root lived in the home with their children and extended family from 1845 to 1886. Hannah Root’s father, Leonard Simpson, lived with the family until his death on Oct. 11, 1856.
The museum offers a glimpse into the lives of the Root family and the enslaved people who lived and worked on the property, according to the museum’s website.
The Root House is located at 80 North Marietta Parkway. Visit its website to learn more about its exhibits.
