Proud Of East Texas: Kathryn Callaway

In describing her life, Kathryn Callaway likes to say she "went from Executive Vice President to Dirt Lady". Callaway's first career was in Dallas banking. In fact, she was one of the first women savings and loan executives in the state.

At age 56, Callaway retired from banking, bought her grandmother's farm near Hughes Springs, named it Holly Hills Farm, and began cultivating plants and herbs. Holly Hills and Callaway became famous. Visitors came from all over the world to visit Holly Hills and Callaway traveled extensively on lecture and workshop tours.

Five years ago after her husband's death, Callaway sold Holly Hills. She has named her new, smaller place "Lady Kathryn's Garden" and it too is becoming famous. At age 85, Callaway still actively gardens, holds workshops, and is considered one of the world's top authorities on herbs.
