We met the guide at plantation store. From there she took us to the original Callaway one room log cabin with original fireplace. The original family was so large they only lived there for 5 years. Close by is the Federal home the family built. This two story was like a palace compared to the earlier cabin. All of the... More

The tour guide was a wealth of knowledge on history of the plantation, surrounding area and the state. It appeared that she seemed to tailor each tour according to the interests the tourists - showing a very personal attention to detail. The plantation was beautiful and appears to have been very well kept. The only request I would have for... More

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...
