Bartow County - Metro Atlanta Guidebook


Bartow County Georgia consists of the following cities:
Adairsville (referred to as a “Norman Rockwell kind of town” and Home of Barnsley Gardens Resort),
Cartersville (county seat and home of Etowah Indian Mounds and Allatoona Pass Battlefield - one of the most intact Civil War battle sites in the nation!),
Emerson (home of the remains of the Etowah Railroad Bridge which was burned six times by the end of the War Between the States and was a major target of ‘Andrew's Raiders’ during the Great Locomotive Chase),
Euharlee (derives its meaning from the Indian name “Eufala” meaning “she laughs as she runs” - rich in archaeological evidence of early Indian civilizations),
Kingston (home of Kingston Downs situated along the historic Etowah River where a series of races collectively known as the Atlanta Steeplechase are run),
Taylorsville (home of “The Big Horn” - a 9-ton magical vehicle made up historic bells, horns, steam gauges, a calliope and a variety of whistles used in parades and celebrations throughout the Southeast!),
White (home of the William Weinman Mineral Museaum - considered the finest mineral museum in the Southeastern United States!)

The folks here proudly refer to Bartow County as being “just 45 miles North of Atlanta yet 100 years away”. You’ll find some of the South’s most interesting pages of history and historic sites here from the ancient Cherokee Indian heritage to the bloody battlefields and cemeteries of the Civil War days.

There’s so much to see and do in Bartow County. Whether it’s a romantic weekend getaway, the quiet serenity of a peaceful spot by Allatoona Lake, a scenic back road drive, a family outing for hiking or wildlife watching to Red Top Mountain Sate Park, The Pumpkin Patch or Possum Trot Farm, a stroll around Friendship Plaza, a farm tour, or a visit to one of the many museums or the world’s first Coca-Cola wall sign in downtown Cartersville, Bartow County has lots to offer! And, though the mountains DO get in the way of the city lights of Atlanta, you can be at a Braves game or other major Atlanta attraction in less than an hour. In fact, the gracious southern living of Bartow County Georgia is only an hour or two from Chattanooga, Birmingham, and Columbus.
