Cartersville, Georgia, Information
Cartersville is a vibrant city located in the rolling hills of north Georgia, 45 minutes northwest of Atlanta and has a population of approximately 17,400. Established in 1850, the city has a significant amount of history. Most of the area surrounding Cartersville was affected by Sherman's March to the Sea during the Civil War. The County Seat, at the time, was in nearby Cassville which was largely destroyed by Sherman. Cartersville suffered little damage in comparison and became the new County Seat for the newly named Bartow County.
Today, Cartersville has an abundance of cultural and recreational opportunities. Historic Downtown Cartersville has the Grand Theatre that first opened in 1910, the 80,00 square foot Booth Western Art Museum and the Bartow History Center. The city is also the site of the Etowah Indian Mounds Historic Site dating from 1000 A.D., and is now a public attraction. City parks include picnic areas, athletic fields, as well as walking trails. The newly completed Pine Mountain trail is also easily accessible and offers 3 miles of strenuous hiking.
