  • Barrington Hall

Barrington Hall is one of the best examples of Greek Revival Temple architecture in the United States today. The surrounding 7 acres of original grounds look much as they did 160 years ago. Barrington Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been called one of metro Atlanta's 50 Most Beautiful Homes by Atlanta Magazine. On your visit to Barrington Hall, you will be inspired by generations of the King family through furnishings, artifacts and stories.

In the summer and fall of 1864, Roswell was occupied by Union troops. According to family tradition, Union General Kennar Gerrard briefly occupied Barrington Hall. The King family fled Roswell before the occupation and returned after the war. Unfortunately, soon after their return, Barrington King was injured by his horse and died a few days later. Barrington King and his wife, Catharine, had 12 children. Six of his sons served in the Confederate Army; two were killed, and three were wounded.
