Callaway Plantation

About Us

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 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).
