In the year 1830, Roswell King was travelling through what is now the city of Roswell on his way to northern Georgia when he came across the region that is now Roswell and saw the huge potential for constructing a cotton mill along Vickery Creek. In light of the fact that the surrounding area was suitable for plantations as well, he devised a strategy to locate cotton processing close to cotton cultivation.

Around the middle of the 1830s, King came back to the area to construct the Roswell Mill, which was destined to become the biggest mill in the region of north Georgia. In order to construct the mills, he took with him 36 African slaves from his own coastal property as well as an additional 42 trained carpenter slaves whom he had purchased in Savannah. Slaves were responsible for the construction of the new town's mills, as well as its infrastructure, housing, mill worker quarters, and other supporting facilities. The Africans who settled in northern Georgia carried with them their distinctive Geechee culture, language, and religious traditions from the coast.
