Callaway Plantation

The Callaway Plantation is a living history museum and restoration area in Washington, Georgia. The plantation is a complex portraying life in the American South from the late 1700s through the turn of the century. Callaway brings history to life in the three restored homes, barns, other outbuildings, and fields.

Parker Callaway started building the Greek Revival home found on the site but died before it was completed. Parker's son Aristides finished it in 1869. The family occupied the home from 1869 until 1910. The granddaughter of Aristides Callaway deeded the property to the City of Washington in the 1960s. A panorama below will give you a great view of the plantation.

I can only assume that this cooler proves
that the Callaways preferred Coke over Pepsi!
