Rome Area History Museum

Rome Area History Museum

The exhibits throughout the museum strive to portray the history of Rome and the surrounding area. The permanent exhibits travel through time, beginning with the Native Americans and early settlers and continuing through the Civil War and onto developing Rome's culture and industries. Original documents such as maps, photographs, books, and personal letters are displayed in the permanent exhibits. The museum also houses an archives which holds memorabilia pertaining to the Northwest Georgia region.

We hope you enjoy our work.
