After visiting the Lindale Mill with Roswell Photographic Society, a few of us went over to get lunch and stroll around Barnsley Gardens. The Barnsley Resort and Spa in Adairsville, features golf, horseback riding and beautiful grounds to relax in and enjoy.
The ruins of the original Barnsley manor, named “Woodlands” are featured in my image here. Built in the 1850’s by the wealthy cotton and sea merchant, Godfrey Barnsley, the Italinanate mansion is one of the most memorable feature of the resort. The story goes that Barnsley built the mansion for his wife Julia who became sick and passed away before the construction was finished. He felt called by her spirit to finish the building and it became the family residence for several generations before falling into ruin after having been hit by a tornado.
