Bellevue is well worth a visit if you are in LaGrange. An historical mansion restored by the local Calloway Foundation and owned by a local charitable trust it gives you a real taste of The South. What really brings the house to life are the two charming mangers, Valerie and Freddie. They have a wealth of knowledge on the house... More

We toured this amazing home this past Saturday. We actually drove to LaGrange to see the Norman Rockwell exhibit at the Art Museum and decided to take a little side trip to see Bellevue. Pulling up Ben Hill Rd. Bellevue comes into sight and you immediately know this is going to be special. We arrived (as usual) without cash (only... More

If you love visiting restored antebellum homes this is for you. The massive magnolias before the impressive columned porch took my breath away as we drove up to the house. I could almost see a vision of Scarlett coming out to great us. Luckily the house has been restored by the Callaway Foundation. Unfortunately, the house doesn't have it it's... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this little nugget of history. It was surprising to learn how this beautiful historic mansion survived the Civil War. The docents are lovely and very knowledgeable about the home and its tales. My 11 year old even enjoyed our visit. Thank you for a memorable afternoon!

Belleview is a beautiful mansion tucked away on a quiet street. Gina and I thoroughly enjoyed our history tour and conversation with Bellevue's wonderful caretakers. They were very knowledgeable about the house and local history. The mansion is in great shape and their collection of period antiques continues to grow. A nice surprise and a must visit site for history... More

Bellevue is one of the most authentic houses of its type in the south. Definitely worth a visit and tour which is included in the nominal admission price.

We enjoyed touring the Bellvue. The history behing the home was very interesting. We had a wonderful gentleman guide us and he was very knowledgable about the house and the family. This is an inexpensive tour. $5.00 and well worth that and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

This is an old antebellum with period and original pieces. It is easy to do a self guided tour. They had volunteers who could answer your questions. The home is available for weddings and special occasions. We thought it was worth our visit.
