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.

The home is lovely. The restoration is beautiful. Such a part of the history of Roswell. Would highly recommend visiting.

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 in the kitchen with an informal chat and an ice cream sundae.

The tour price is reasonable and if you are a AAA member there is a discount. Just bring your card in with you.

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 us and answered many questions. The home had remained in the King family up until 1996 when Katherine Simpson, great - granddaughter of Barrington King passed away. A new owner had painstakingly restored the house around 2003 before selling it to the city of Roswell. Also, the gardens are beautiful and worth walking around. If you're looking for a beautiful antebellum house, this is it!

This is a fun place to tour and get the feel of the old south. The tour guides are very friendly and knowledgeable.
