Barrington Hall - 1842 
535 Ba rrington Drive
In th e 183 0s R oswell Kin g and his son, Barrington, co-founded the colony now known as Roswell. Barrington built his home on the highest point so that it overlooked the town. Today Barrington Hall is recognized as one of the finest examples of Greek revival architecture in the country. It is listed as one of Atlanta's 50 Most Beautiful Homes.

Bulloch Hall
- 1839
180 Bulloch Avenue
Bulloch Hall was built by the grandson of Georgia's Revolutionary Governor, Archibald Bulloch. Here, Mittie Bulloch grew up, and eventually married Theodore Roosevelt in Bulloch Hall at Christmas time in 1853. This was the union that produced U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt. The couple's other son named Elliot fathered Eleanor, who became the wife of President Franklin Roosevelt. Bulloch Hall features an exhibit that provides opportunities to explore and recognize the role of African-Americans in the history of Roswell.
935 Alpharetta Street
Archibald Smith traveled to Roswell from the heat of coastal Georgia in 1845. His family built Smith Plantation on 300 acres of land. The historic landmark is filled with the family's original artifacts. It is complete with a parson's room and 10 original outbuildings, among them slave quarters and a spring house.
The Trilogy Pass allows you to visit all three homes and may be used over multiple days. The pass is $18 for adults and $15 for students ages 6-18.
