Barton Hall, also known as the Cunningham Plantation, is an antebellum plantation house built for Armstead Barton in the 1840s near present day Cherokee, Alabama. The home is located south of US 72 and east of the Natchez Trace Parkway, in the former town of Buzzard Roost.
The National Park Service describes the home as an unusually sophisticated Greek Revival-style plantation house with small Doric entrance and limestone-paved rear courtyard. The interior contains a stairway that ascends in a series of double flights and bridge-like landings to an observatory on the rooftop that offers views of the plantation.
