Barrington Hall is one of several elegant houses owned and maintained by the City of Roswell. In the center of town on an intact garden of perhaps eight acres, it is an oasis in a very densely populated suburb of Atlanta.

Several girls in the neighborhood went to a cooking class. We had a blast and the tour is fun and informative. The menu and the cooking part was just average.

Wowed by the visit. Great tour guide, Michael, really knew about the house and his enthusiasm showed. The same family liver here forever, so most of what is in the house is original, which is pretty rare these days. Plus amazing grounds! A real gem, Roswell should be proud.

This is the 1842 Greek Revival home of Barrington King, the son of Roswell King who was the founder of Roswell, GA. In addition to seeing how a prominent southern family lived, we learned the history of the King family which was very interesting. Because we were the only ones on the tour, our tour guide took extra time with... More

we really enjoyed our tour. The docent was excellent and very knowledgable. If you like history, antiques and old homes, you will love Barrington House. There are three homes all within a mile of each other. This was my favorite of the two that we had time to tour.

Barrington Hall is unique among historic homes as it has much of the original furniture. The docent presented family information interwoven with general area history. Tours are on the hour starting at 10 AM and ending at 3 PM.
