Rome is home to the largest Victorian Era District in the state of Georgia.
This area, which lies between the Etowah and Oostanaula rivers, is the site of Rome’s founding in 1834 and where early business and industry served the new town. As this district continued to grow, the area was ravaged by the Civil War and much of Rome was burned. From the ashes, the spirit of Rome emerged and rebuilt the community into a thriving town.
