A group from our church went to a tour of this plantation and it was great. The young lady who presented the tour was very knowledgeable about the history of this plantation and the family who lived there. Highly recommend visiting whenever you go to Washington, Georgia and taking the Aunt Fanny's Tour of Washington as well. Very enjoyable day in learning about the history of this area,

We were on our way to Atlanta on back roads when we spotted this beautiful brick house. We turned around and met the docent Candace...and had a terrific tour!

Unfortunately we were pressed for time, but Candace (only in her third week as docent!) really knew her stuff!
Unlike other tours you get to be up close and personal in the houses and are even allowed to touch many objects!

The Callaway family is very interesting and the buildings and houses are wonderful.

THIS IS A MUST-SEE PLANTATION!!!!

Interesting structures and preserved history of the Callaway family. Disappointing that there was little to no acknowledgement of the 100+ slaves that worked the plantation and lived on the property. The guide did say that Mr. Callaway mentioned slaves by name in his will and apparently that was unusual to do. There is a slave cabin on the property but it is hidden in some trees and mentioned as an afterthought and something you can go to and look at yourself. There is so much more that could be done to tell the real story of all the lives that called this place home.

Blacks stomped into oblivion here. Do not visit. Once again, Blacks do not get mentioned. Do picket.

We took our children and our home school group here to this historical plantation site just north of Washington, GA in Wilkes county. It was really neat to see and they even gave the kids a guided tour. very educational for them and their Georgia history lessons. We went during the Fall when it was cooler, and it was more enjoyable to walk around and see everything. Good experience and we will take the children back again because they are already asking to go back. Watch for special events also.

For years, I had driven past but never stopped. So, so glad we finally did. The general store had old Time and Life magazines, back to the early 50s or earlier. There were so many things to see in the store. The cabin, Grey house and brick house showed the progression of the family's life through generations on the plantation. The furnishings in the big house were remarkable! The kitchen was amazing as was the little school house. Wonderful visit and would highly recommend it.

I came all the way from Tucson, AZ to visit this plantation and it was wonderful. There was a guided tour and a self guided tour. It was only $7 to get in and it was truly amazing to see how civilization once use to be. Very nice would go again.

I loved this place! I drove by it taking back highways home from Charleston to Knoxville and had to turn around to go check it out. It is full of historical buildings and set up like old plantation life. Staff were leaving and closing for the day when I arrived, they were so nice and friendly and said I was welcome to walk around and explore and take pictures.

This was an educational day with my grand-boys! We had the grounds to ourselves while we leisurely wandered through the Brick House, Grey House and School after hearing some historical facts from Mr. Slaytor. A highlight for the boys was "Bambi" the tame fawn who wandered in just as we were finishing our tour! Wonderful!
