These three historical homes are all wonderful and staffed by knowledgeable docents. Each house is different, so it is not repetitive at all. The Archibald Smith Plantation shows how the wealthy planter lived and includes outbuildings such as the barn and cookhouse. Bulloch Hall is a bit more grand as it is the home of the mill owner and grandfather... More

Enjoy the three beautiful historic homes in Roswell. So many original buildings in addition to the houses, and a lot of original artifacts that belonged to the people that built the homes and enjoyed living there. ENJOY !

The three homes we saw-Bulloch Hall, Barrington Hall and Smith Plantation were well worth the visit to Roswell, but I would not take young children. Each home tour started on the hour and lasted close to an hour. We did the first two that are close to each other then took a break and ate some pie at The Pie... More

Shame the timing is not better, with three homes on a combined card these are good value, but all tours start on the hour so you have an hour to wait between each as the tour takes nearly an hour once the guide has sold/checked tickets, so you can not go from one to the other. How about doing one... More

This tour package was a fantastic value (especially with the Groupon) to get a historical perspective of Roswell, the founders of the city, and other historical figures. The docents at each of the houses were very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions.

We only toured one of the mansions due to time constraints, but enjoyed the tour guide and history. Very well preserved.

I took my sister to these charming homes when she was in town for a short visit. Each home has a different character. The host at each house was excellent telling us many good stories. If you have the time I would highly recommend seeing all 3 because it gives you a different perspective on what life was like when... More

Pros: As I stated in my reviews for Bulloch and Barrington themselves, the tour guides are amazing and the history is known and retold throughout the tour. Most of the original pieces are still in the homes, most of it being beautifully carved handmade furniture. Cons: To see all three homes you must arrive by 1 on the dot. Otherwise... More

The homes and the grounds are very beautiful but the tours don't tell the whole story. How the land once belonged to the Cherokee Indians who were driven out of the area by the Federal government once gold was discovered there. The famous Trail of Tears tells the story. (One tour even says the Cherokee home they used while building... More
