Mission Statement

The William Root House and its grounds and outbuildings will be operated for educational purposes as a house museum. The structures, furnishings, landscaping and special exhibits will be used to show how the family of a middle-class Marietta merchant lived in the mid-nineteenth century and to help visitors relate that knowledge to the history of the community, state and nation.


The Root House Museum and Gardens is looking for enthusiastic and reliable individuals to provide tours of the house, outbuildings, and grounds.

I really enjoy volunteering at Root House because they really do appreciate their volunteers and make each and every one feel like they are really needed and appreciated. It is a lot of fun learning about history and teaching other people about it. I recommend this place to everyone who has an interest in life in the mid 1850's in an average middle class home not a huge High Victorian or plantation home. I really enjoy it because it is a place where I think the every day person can relate and see how someone in the same financial and social class over 150 years ago.
