Don’t get this twisted, though. The non-profit Ida Cason Callaway Foundation, the entity that owns the Callaway Gardens, controls about 13,000 acres, and of that about 2,500 acres is used for the gardens and resort. The area that’s been sold is out in the boonies, and not used by visitors.
Callaway Gardens has seen a decline in visitors, about 600,000 fewer people visited Callaway last summer than in previous years, the Advertiser reported. However, those figures don't include people who come to the gardens and forgo the resort, spokesperson Rachel Crumbley told us. Meanwhile, we’ll keep our ears open to learn the plans for the 4,500 acres, and the resort's attempts to sell even more of the land.
