Callaway Plantation, a 56 acre restoration project, offers a glimpse into a bygone era of working plantations in the agricultural South. Telling the intimate story of one family's legacy, visitors to Callaway Plantation can see, touch and hear 200 years of Wilkes County history. Callaway Plantation began with a log cabin built by Job Callaway in 1785, then grew to a 3,000 acre working plantation complete with a brick mansion by the 1860's. Gifted to the City of Washington by the Callaway family, the property is now home to unique historical structures open for public tour - the Log Cabin (1785), the Grey House (1790), Dally Slave Cabin (1840), a one-room schoolhouse (1891), and the General Store (1930).
Callaway Plantation is located at 2160 Lexington Rd. Washington GA 30673, just 4 miles west of Historic Washington, Georgia
