We offer many resources for the history buff and casual visitor alike. Researching your family's history? Check our Archives or give us a call. Looking for something to do on a rainy day? Come downtown and stop by – our Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday. We offer special Exhibits throughout the year that might be of interest to you. Just moved to town and would like to find out more about the many parts of our local history? Do you know anything about the Etowah Mounds or DeSoto, the Cherokee or General Sherman? Why are Sam P. Jones, Rebecca Felton, and Joe Frank Harris still talked about in a neighborly fashion? If none of these names rings a bell – you should visit us to find out why they are an integral part of Bartow County!
