Southern Trilogy

We did all three sites. It took us two days to accomplish since we started late the first day. But all three are well worth the time to explore.

Well worth the small amount to visit all three homes. The docents are very charismatic and informative. The area is so rich in history. The authentic furniture and household items/clothing were so fascinating! I recommend starting with a ten, then eleven o'clock tour, then go to one of the local restaurants for lunch (like The Public House), then go to... More

I recommend this combo package to see 3 historic homes in Roswell: Bulloch Hall, Barrington Hall and Smith Plantation. The tickets don't expire so you don't have to see them all in one day. Stop by the visitor's center to get a map and some background info on the area.

Always take visitors from out of town to these houses. So much history in Roswell. If you can only do one house, do Bullock Hall...home of Teddy Rosevelt's mother. Each house has it's own unique history and all have lovely furnishings. The docents give great talks. At Christmas, Bullock Hall has an enactment of Mittie Bullock's wedding (get tickets early)....

We really enjoyed this tour. Have visited all sights before but had company in who wanted to see them. I enjoy having different people in the houses to give you the history. Each one usually has an area that they are particullary interested in. Probably wouldn't be interesting to younger children. Each house is about an hour tour

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. I would buget 1 hour per home maybe and half an hour if you also want explore outside too.

The value of information to see these three estates is unmeasurable. I enjoyed each visit. The docents are very informative and courteous.

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
