|Government||House Dustin, House Stout , Feudal Lord.|
|Notable places||Barrow Hall, Great Barrow|
Barrowton is centered around the large hill Great Barrow, on which was built the Dustins' castle, Barrow Hall. The town itself is wooden and has broad straight streets. House Stout of Goldgrass has a keep near the eastern gate of Barrowton. Outside of the town are rolling plains which the wind howls over.
Against the wishes of his wife, Lady Barbrey Dustin, Lord Willam Dustin personally led the Barrowton levies during Robert's Rebellion. After he was slain at the tower of joy, Lord Eddard Stark returned Willam's stallion, not his bones, to Barrowton.

Following the surrender of Moat Cailin, the Boltons call upon the northern bannermen to assemble in Barrowton to pledge loyalty to the Iron Throne and attend the wedding of Ramsay to "Arya Stark", actually Jeyne Poole. Houses Stout and Dustin host the Boltons while they wait for the bannerman to arrive and while Ramsay searches the barrowlands for missing Freys. Lady Barbrey forbids Ramsay from Barrow Hall, and he is instead reluctantly hosted by Harwood Stout.
After hearing that Stannis Baratheon has taken Deepwood Motte, Lord Roose Bolton decides to move the wedding to Winterfell to strengthen Ramsay's claim and to goad Stannis into fighting. While riding from the Stouts' keep to Barrow Hall, Roose tells Theon Greyjoy about his sons Ramsay and Domeric Bolton.
A smith from Barrowton hammers a crude iron kraken brooch for Theon to wear for the wedding. Jeyne is protected by Lady Dustin during the journey from Barrowton to Winterfell. Barbrey brings furnishings from the town for Jeyne's bedchamber in Winterfell, as well as food and fodder for the levies.
