Over the next two decades, they expanded their holdings, their love of the surroundings grew, and they began to think their treasure needed to be shared beyond immediate friends and family. In the late 1940s, the development of Callaway Gardens began in earnest, and on May 21, 1952, the Gardens opened to the public. Since that time, millions of visitors have found respite for the weary, recreation for the restless and adventure for all ages.
