During the "Pay What You Can" week, visitors to the Root House can pay whatever they feel comfortable paying for admission (or nothing at all).

About the William Root House Museum & Garden:

The Root House was built circa 1845 for Hannah and William Root, early settlers of Marietta. Mr. Root was one of Marietta's earliest merchants and its first druggist. It is the oldest existing house in downtown Marietta. The Root family owned the house until it was sold in 1886. By the late 1980s, the Root house had fallen into disrepair and was slated for demolition. After the house was documented as one of Marietta's oldest buildings, preservation efforts began, and in 1989, Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society acquired the house and moved it to its present location (leased to Cobb Landmarks by the City of Marietta) at the corner of Polk Street and North Marietta Parkway. After being moved in 1990, the house was restored to its c. 1845 appearance for use as a historic house museum.
