Primrose Cottage was the first permanent home in the Roswell colony, built for the widowed daughter of Roswell King. Mr. King also lived here with his daughter and her children. Each baluster of the beautiful heart-pine fence was hand-turned. In later years, Nap Rucker lived in this home. Known for his knuckle-ball pitch, Nap "Napoleon" Rucker played for the Brooklyn Dodgers and won 135 games in a ten year career. He also served as Mayor of Roswell 1935- 1936. Today, Primrose Cottage is an events facility.
