The Roswell Railroad began operating in 1881 and continued to operate until 1920. One man was in charge of the railroad for the entire duration, Isaac Roberts. Roberts was responsible for the development and operation of the railroad which led to the formation of two new cities, Dunwoody and Chamblee. Roberts was more than a railroad man; he was an entrepreneur who played a key role in the reconstruction of the entire area. In 1895 he built a Victorian home across from the northern terminal of the rail-line. It still stands today on the road named after him, Roberts Drive. This lecture is the story of the man, his home and his railroad.
