A few weeks ago, I took an entire day to just wander around in Atlanta. Somewhere in my wandering, I wound up at this grand old Southern estate, Barrington Hall. I had never heard of it before, it just caught by eye enough to stop and take some pictures. The clouds were so fully that day that they made for added drama to the impressive structure. The first picture is my submission to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness ~ 49. (If you haven’t see it, check it out. There a several links to different bloggers’ submissions, and of course, Leanne Cole’s stunning work.)
According to the Roswell historical site…
“In 1838, Barrington King moved his family from coastal Georgia, to the newly formed colony of Roswell in the rolling, wooded hills of north Georgia. There he was instrumental in the development of the fledgling community and in founding the successful textile mills of the Roswell Manufacturing Company. Their new home, Barrington Hall, has remained largely unchanged since its completion in 1842.”
I got there too late in the day to get a tour of the inside, but was able to look around the outside. Here are a few views of the grounds, with some post process editing fun.
