Fodor's Expert Review Callaway Plantation

Athens House/Mansion/Villa

Be sure to stop by historic Callaway Plantation, 4 miles west of downtown. Here, at a site dating to 1785, you can experience the closest thing to an operating plantation. Among a cluster of buildings on the estate you can find a blacksmith's house, schoolhouse, and weaving house. An ancient family cemetery is also fun to explore. During the second week of both April and October the estate comes alive with Civil War reenactments and activities such as butter-churning and quilting demonstrations.
