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 to the Visitors Center 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.
Now owned by the Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society, 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.
