DescriptionBarrett House, also known as Forest Hall, was built c. 1800 by Charles Barrett Sr. for his son Charles Jr. and daughter-in-law Martha Minot on the occasion of their marriage. According to tradition, its grand scale was encouraged by Martha's father, who promised to furnish the house in as lavish a manner as Barrett Sr. could build it. The house features family furnishings, French scenic wallpaper, pristine early twentieth-century bathrooms, and a third-floor ballroom with period musical instruments. The seventy acres include a terraced allee leading up a hillside to a Gothic Revival summerhouse.
