Callaway Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the heritage and history of the Bay County area through its refurbished Old School House and two Callaway Museums.
Callaway was platted in 1911 – two years before the formation of Bay County – by the descendants of Pitt Milner Callaway for whom the community was named. The School House was built that year and served the community until it closed in 1936.
The Old School House continues to be used to this day for plays, tours, and classes. It hosts the monthly meetings of the Callaway Historical Society on the third Sunday of each month from 3:00 until 4:00 p.m. The School and the two Callaway Museums are open from 4:00 until 5:00 p.m. after the monthly meetings.
Special events during the fall will include a Heritage Day Festival on November 3 and Thanksgiving and Christmas displays.
