Where are we going today?

As a vital center for local historical research, the Rome Area History Museum is appropriately located on Broad Street in the heart of Historic Downtown Rome, Georgia. The Museum was established in 1996 to promote an understanding of our shared past, to enrich our lives, and to inspire a stronger sense of community. The museum strives to achieve this goal through preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting collections portraying the history of Rome and the surrounding area. Thousands of visitors young and old have taken advantage of the programs and exhibits at the Rome Area History Museum. The permanent exhibits create a walk through time starting with the Native Americans and early settlers, through the Civil War, and then the development of Rome’s culture, life-ways, and industries. Original documents such as maps, blueprints, photos, personal letters, and business records provide primary sources that paint a picture of Rome’s history. The archives house photographs, books, and manuscripts pertaining to the Northwest Georgia region.
