A real gem. Built in 1842 and lived in by the SAME family for over 160 years! Full of original family possessions. Plus our tour guide Michael knew everything about the family and property and was entertaining to boot. Oh, and seven acres of original landscape and a mid 19th formal boxwood garden. Don't miss it!

It is a trek but if you're intersted in historical sites go here. The tours are very informative on the history of the house. Plus Rosewell is a beautiful town with amazing antique stores

Antebellum house that survived the Civil War virtually intact. Filled with original furnishings. The best part was the docent's talk -- filled with gossipy tidbits about the families that lived there and dirt-dishings about the neighbors.

Interesting about the history of Roswell. Downside doors not open when we arrived so not sure if tour was on.

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. The house is a magnificently preserved large Greek Revival mansion with fluted columns on three sides. The interior is... More

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.

I have lived in or near Roswell for about 30 years now and although I have visited Barrington Hall before this time we decided to take the 'formal' tour. This house and the history surrounding it is truly interesting and remarkable. The home is beautiful inside and out and the stories of the occupants is quite interesting. The tour ended... More

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
