Barrington Hall was built by Roswell King and his son, Barrington, during the 1830's when he acquired the land and began the Roswell Company. Barrington, president of the company, developed many successful cotton and woolen mills on the vast property.
After inviting other families to the area, it began to flourish and slowly developed into what we know today as the city of Roswell.
Barrington Hall was passed down from generation to generation until it was sold to the city during 2005 after undergoing an extensive and award-winning restoration.
Visitors may now tour the home to see many exquisite original details and furnishings.
