I'm a home schooling mom of three elementary aged children and we visited on a Tuesday around 11:00. We had the place to ourselves. For all four of us, we paid around $23 and had an hour and a half private tour. Susanna, the guide, walked us carefully through each structure on the property and provided such great information.

While driving Hwy 78 from Athens, GA to the SC coast for a mini vacation we saw the sign "Mule Day" so of course we had to stop. For the next couple of hours we became tourists in our own history. We were at the historic Callaway Plantation. 56 Acres of History and, on this day mules. Modest cost of... More

Took a day trip out to Washington GA and this tour was the highlight! I had a one on one tour, and it was well worth the price of admission. Interesting, informative, and engaging - brought the place to life hearing about the family. Fun to see how the housing of the family evolved over time, from a log cabin,... More

We visited Callaway on our visit to Washington. The home is well restored and maintained and the tour guide was very informative and helpful. The main house has a lot of history and period furnishings plus the out buildings are equally interesting especially the Gray House. We would recommend this house for history buffs of the South as well as... More

Had a one-to-one tour of the grounds and main house with a very knowledgeable guide Susanna Carter. The Callaway family that settled from England in the 1700's were the ancestors of the modern day Californian Callaway golf company. The tour was worth every cent of the $7 admission.

This is a MUST visit if you are in this area. Very nice history of this family, the way of life in the old days - lots of various buildings, photos, period furniture and a great walk-around tour where our guide was so articulate and knowledgeable - not the usual restrictions inside the house - one can move as freely...

An interesting place to visit with a lot of local history. The tour is best if Olivia is the guide. Well maintained homes with period and some original family pcs. We take all of our out of town guests here and they all love it. Last year the tour was $4 each. Other reviewer said it was $7, not sure... More
