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.

Once again, I enjoyed the grounds more than the interior, but that's just me.

We did a family photo session here for our family Christmas card. The grounds are beautiful and they do tours of the house as well.
