Overview

Hills & Dales Estate is the historic home and garden of textile magnate Fuller E. Callaway. Located in LaGrange, Georgia. The centerpiece of the estate is a beautiful Georgian-Italian style home built in 1916. Designed by the noted architectural firm of Hentz & Reid it is one of the finest homes built toward the end of the country house era. The home was occupied by two generations of the Callaway family and contains all of the families' original furnishings. Formal gardens surrounding the home and were created by the original owner of the property, Sarah Coleman Ferrell prior to the Civil War. Within the gardens visitors will see many of Sarah's religiously inspired planting including a large planting of the word "God" and her personal motto "God is Love." The extensive formal boxwood garden also feature an herb garden, greenhouse, fountains and garden sculpture. The 35-acre estate, complemented by a Visitor Center containing family artifacts and displays, opened to the public in 2004. In May of 2010 twenty additional rooms on the second and third floor of the home opened for tours.

We hit the perfect afternoon. Rains all morning shortened the crowd. By the time we arrived we were the only ones there. Private docent tour. Beth was wonderful and quite knowledgeable. Also we had a private garden walk with Sarah Ferrell. What a fine Gardner.

Our tour took about an hour 15 minutes or so. Part of this tour is self guided, the garden portion. So you can adjust depending on your schedule. It was 15 dollars for admission.
