Historic Roswell….

Historic Roswell

During our visit to this small town about 30 minutes outside of Atlanta, we had plans to only visit one historic plantation, The Archibald Smith Plantation. Then, we found out about the Trilogy pass. The opportunity to explore two additional historic homes at a discount rate; Barrington Hall and Bulloch Hall. The map of these can be found from Historic Roswell Business Association by clicking here

Interesting Statue of A Lion….

The second home on the trilogy pass was Barrington Hall, a nice Greek-revival style home built in the 1830’s. The foyer was decorated nicely and there old Icehouse to the right of the home had a display of some interesting artifacts (see image below). This home is also within walking distance to the historic downtown of Roswell  and worth a visit, if you only have time to see one home during your time in this small-town.

Bulloch Hall

The third historic home on this day trip to this historic town was Bulloch Hall. For those who are wondering what is the big of this house. It is the childhood home of Mittie Bulloch, the mother of President Theodore Roosevelt.  The grounds have some rosebushes, but none were in bloom as it seems the heavy rains recently did not lend to a good season for them. The interior of the house is decorated with various wedding gowns from the decades.
