The surrounding seven acres of original grounds look the same as they did 160 years ago. Fourteen Doric columns line three sides of Barrington Hall, and Civil War bullets removed from the tops of the columns during the restoration provide evidence that the house was used as Union headquarters. Generations of the King family can be absorbed through the many furnishings, artifacts, and stories throughout the home.
The original outbuildings on the current site include a smoke house, icehouse, kitchen, and two wells. Barrington Hall posseses the only antebellum public garden in the greater Atlanta area.
