Callaway Plantation, a 56-acre historic restoration project, offers a glimpse into the by-gone era of working plantations in the agricultural South. Telling the intimate story of one family's legacy, visitors to Callaway Plantation can see, feel, and touch 200 years of Wilkes County history. Callaway Plantation humbly 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 1860s. Gifted to the City of Washington by the Callaway family, the property is now home to six unique historical structures open for public tour - the Log Cabin (1785), the Grey House (1790), the Gilmer House (1800), the Dally Slave Cabin (1840), a one-room School House (1891), and the General Store (1930). Guided tours at 10am, 12pm, 2pm, and 3:30pm. Picnic and RV facilities on-site.
