Southern Trilogy Winter Festival 2016
The Southern Trilogy are three beautiful historical houses and their glimpses into the past are a great way to spend a day. Barrington Hall is one of the best examples of Greek revival architecture in the United States and Barrington is at the peak of Roswell, overlooking it. Bulloch Hall was built in the Greek revival style as well, and it was home to one of the first settlers, Major James Stephens Bulloch. And last but not least, there is Smith Plantation, with elegant walls and their belongings were saved, and one of the best examples of vernacular architecture.
But in December, at the Winter Festival, you won’t be able to take your eyes off what the Southern Trilogy have planned for you! On Saturday, December 5th, you’ll find out what each house contains. The 2nd annual Twisted Tinsel is going to be crazy with silly games, photo booth to show off your ugly Christmas sweaters, Rudolf the red nosed John Deere ride, cookie making, treats, s’mores, ornament making, twisted entertainment, face painting, train rides, and storytelling.
The Southern Trilogy Winter Festival also includes a trolley ride between Barrington Hall, Bulloch Hall, and Smith Plantation. Each house is decorated for the Christmas holiday with lights galore. I’m sure you would enjoy all the titbits you will have the opportunity to see.
