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

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
