Barton Hall or the Cunningham Plantation was built in the 1840s by Armstead Barton on the Natchez Trace, in the vicinity of the old Buzzard Roost town. Since then, the house has continued to be a private property and is not open for tourists. But, because of its unique and neoclassical Greek revival architectural design, the plantation was nominated and later on included in the list of National Historic Landmarks in 1973.

The best features of the house include its small but elegant front porch entrance that is made of Doric columns and the back patio tiled with lime stones. Inside the house is a majestic double-winding staircase that rises to a rooftop garden. The rooftop garden used to be an observatory where you can get a full view of the estate and monitor the workers on the plantation.
