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.

Go! Go especially if you are not familiar with life in the south.... it's a great education and you can spend the day at the plantation. The tour is a must but reasonably priced. You will to see the transition of lifestyle through time for several generations of the Calloway Family.

The Callaway plantation has several buildings to walk through. There is a tour guide for the houses along with many artifacts from the time. The steps in the houses are not handicap accessible. There are no elevators in the homes. It’s amazing how many books and other artifacts are available for viewing. If you enjoy history, you will like this place.

A great personal tour of an important part of history in the area. Enjoyable experience of a progression of history and a chance to walk the grounds and even visit a one room school house.
