Description of Hills & Dales Estate:
The centerpiece of the Hill & Dales Estate is a beautiful Georgian-Italian villa, designed by architects Hal Hentz & Neel Reid for textile magnate Fuller E. Callaway, Sr. Completed in 1916. The home complements the formal boxwood gardens planted earlier in the mid 19th century by Sarah Ferrell.
The property has been lovingly preserved by two generations of the Callaway family and is now open for public visitation. Guests can explore educational exhibits and experience an engaging film that tells the story of the estate.
