I recommend this home tour for a very enjoyable and historical view of early life in LaGrange. Our host was most hospitable and enlightened us with a delightful tour. The home is sometimes closed for special events and when I called he offered us an afternoon tour. Since this is common on the weekend I'd advice you call ahead. Don't... More

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!
