Roswell is inviting locals to become a part of the jet-set - without ever leaving the city during the fourth annual “Trilogy Trolley Crawl” in mid-August.
Each year, Roswell transforms its three most famous historic homes - Barrington Hall, Bulloch Hall and Smith Plantation - into noteworthy places throughout the world. By catching a trolley between each home, guests are transported to three different cities. This year during the crawl, August 18, steal away to the following locals for the night:
- Barrington Hall: Ignite your inner ‘hippy’ and leave your heart in ‘San Francisco’. Roving Hare Krishnas will greet you as you drift through the grounds and explore all the city has to offer! Take your picture seated in the decorated VW microbus or learn to roll your own tobacco cigarettes. Enjoy our ‘Fisherman’s Warf’ horseradish crusted black cod with cucumber dill salsa and Ghirardelli chocolate brownies with caramel and crushed pretzel!
- Bulloch Hall: Join our fiesta in ‘Santa Fe’ and feel the blended beats of Nuevo Flamenco, Brazilian and Jazz on Spanish guitar. We’ll turn up the heat with the talented Flamenco dancers who will perform throughout the night and offer mini-Flamenco lessons to those who feel the rhythm. Indulge your taste buds with slow braised short ribs served with smoked paprika mashed potatoes and white chocolate ginger snaps on the lit piazza under the starry sky.
- Smith Plantation: Feast your eyes on the beautiful people as you peruse through ‘South Beach’ and don’t miss the Cabana Boys, at your service! Heat up the dance floor with famous local DJ Latino and his sophisticated club beats or relax by one of the cozy lounge chairs and umbrellas. Be sure to take time to cool down with a shrimp cocktail served with mango salsa and mini key lime tarts. As an added bonus, a professional salsa instructor will be on site to guide you through the moves and don’t forget to register to win an actual trip for two to South Beach!
With the $40 registration, each guest receives one drink ticket and three sampler plate food tickets, as well as live entertainment and trolley shuttles from site to site.
The Trilogy Trolley Crawl has become a ‘must-do’ event for those who are looking for something fun and unique to do in Roswell.
“Let’s celebrate these special historic homes - and these great American cities - without having to leave Roswell,” said Morgan Timmis, Roswell’s Historic and Cultural Affairs manager. “With the addition of Endive Catering and the exceptional entertainment, we anticipate a sold out crowd! People should definitely buy their tickets early.”

Parking is available at each site with additional parking at the parking lot on Mimosa Boulevard. Guests may begin the evening at any of the three locations.
