Barrington Hall reviews
AThis place was amazing! The grounds were beautiful, the docent that we spoke with was unbelievably knowledgeable and sweet.this was a nice retreat from our day in downtown Atlanta.the grounds had many different varieties of plants and flowers and tall trees. The house was well done and kept up with tons of historical stories that were absolutely fascinating. This is must when you come here.
Must see historical site. Very much enjoyed the tour and the well kept home.
