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

An hour drive from the Athens, Ga. area. This is a must see trip well worth the time for those interested in American History. From the American Revolution through the American Civil War up to today trace the history of the Callaway Family through this historic time. See and experience the land where they lived and the houses they built.... More

There is so much to learn about this historic and difficult time in our very young country's making. My daughter and I went on this tour on a whim. I'm truly thankful for Roxanne! What a great tour guide and how she managed to keep a large bunch of kids contained, interested, and controlled was great. She was very delightful.... More

Wonderful place to bring the whole family. Lots of fun at the Annual Mule Day in October every year, and very pretty at Christmas too. History abounds here.

While in Washington Georgia we were investigating my genealogy and saw a brochure for this place. I thought "yeah, cute, another house'...Well we left town in search of an old church where my 4th great grandparents are buried, and low and behold there it was. So I guess I was suppose to go here. There was no one there but... More
