Barnsley Gardens Resort has a long and storied history. It was build by one of the wealthiest men in the south, Godfrey Barnsley, for his wife Julia. Construction began on the Italian-style villa in the 1840s, on land that was once inhabited by Cherokee Indians. Both the home and its elaborate gardens were inspired by the work of Andrew Jackson Downing, a pioneering landscape designer and proponent of Italianate and gothic revival architecture. Sadly, Julia passed away before the home was completed.
