Callaway Plantation is a great place to visit with wonderful history and some amazing artifacts. Candace is a very enthusiastic hostess. The City of Washington needs to do a lot of professional maintenance on some of the buildings. The school house, for example has significant damage to the porch roof - it looks like it could collapse any time. PROFESSIONAL... More

We visited Callaway Plantation this past week, and we loved our time here! The information Candice gave us was so interesting, and we loved having her as a tour guide! What a small world this is - to come to Washington, Georgia and find that our tour guide lived in California for many years! We very much enjoyed our visit... More

We passed the Callaway Plantation during a 4 week tour through the southeastern United States, and stopped off to explore. As with so many things, it is the docent who makes all the difference. We called on a day when there were no other visitors there at the time - possibly because it had been raining quite heavily that morning... More

Callaway Plantation was recommended to us by our sister-in-law. My wife and I love visiting historical homes, especially homes that have a story to tell. We arrived about 1:00 pm and rested on the porch of the General Store until our tour started. What a wonderful tour!! Our tour guide Candice was the director of the plantation. She seemed to...

My husband and I arrived early but Candice, the new director, was accommodating and very delightful. History runs in her blood and she was passionate in recounting the history of the Callaway's. It was well worth our time to make the trip from Missouri to see the plantation.

Recommended by friends.. We were not disappointed. Not your typical attraction. The house was restored by the community. Furniture is period but not all original. You got a feel that real people could easily have lived here. The other structures from original plantation were also brought back to the site. All are open weather permitting.. Only the big house has... More

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... More

My wife and I were on our way to Atlanta when we passed by. We didn't have a lot of time for a full tour but Candice agreed to give us a personal "speed" tour and we really enjoyed it. Only wish we would have had more time.

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
