Barrow County Administration Building
The Barrow County Board of Commissioners recently completed renovations and additions to their Administration Building. The building, formerly the Barrow County Hospital, provided an excellent location for the County but needed modern, open spaces to accommodate the Tax Assessor, Tax Commissioner, and Board Meeting Room. This, together with a new lobby entrance and open stairwell, provided the building blocks for the successful renovation and addition project which was completed in 2002.
