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

A painting of this plantation loomed over Georgia Governor Brian Kemp as he signed a draconian new law aimed at voter suppression. Built by enslaved people, this plantation is a painful and necessary testament to Georgia's past reliance on slavery. Callaway Plantation should remain a tourist attraction. However, I won't be spending any tourist dollars in Georgia while Kemp's law is in place.

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.

Very informative tour of the every day life back in the late 1800s. Very hard life for people back then. Their ingenuity is amazing. We were the only people their and got a really great tour. Our young lady very knowledgeable about the family and the times.
