There isn’t a time where Rome isn’t beautiful. Even at night, there’s plenty to do and if you’re lucky to see our city from above, it’s like a river of gold. Not counting our real rivers, of course.

One of our more eye-catching landmarks is the Robert Redden Bridge; illuminated at night with the American Flag and adorned with “love locks”. The romantic view overlooks the confluence of the three rivers and offers spectacular sunset views!

    You sir do amazing work. I was born in Rome along with my family on both sides but unfortunately left for Florida when I was 3. My heart is in Rome and we have always visited family members as much as possible. We have a private cemetery on the top of a hill in thick woods that date back to the 1800’s. Its behind a church that is across the street from Model HS. It’s been very hard for me to keep up with from Florida and with the very little money I have. I would love to hear back from you if you know of a way or an organization that donates help with these kinds of things. My granny was buried there in 98 and since that time no 9ne had been up to keep it up. When I visited 4 years ago I cried at how badly it was overgrown. It took many visits for me to clear trees and brush. It was vandalized by kids and drug addicts. I’ve done the best I can with it by clearing and fixing broken tombstones. It’s a very small cemetery and everyone in there is my family. After investigating a little, I now know Ward Mountain Rd was named after the Wards which lay at rest there. Things like were very interesting to me. There’s other stories but I’ll save for another time if you’re interested. I would love to hear back from you if you know of someone or an organization that would help me with restoring this historic cemetery that even has civil war vets buried there. Dates back to early 1800’s. I want to eventually save up to grade it and pour gravel around the cemetery where there’s an old road that circles it that was used for the buggy and carriage days. It’s been a few years since I’ve been up so I’m scared to see what has grown back. I hope to hear back from you and of not than I understand too. Love this FB channel and your amazing pics with the history behind it. Rome has my heart, yes, even the paper mill plant in Coosa where I lived until 3. Grannys house is still there with my elderly uncle living there. It was an 1800’s church that was converted to a house when my granddaddy bought it. Asbestos is still there too, lol. My uncle which worked for IBM and was contracted by NASA owns the house now. A millionaire living in that old house but he’s content. Thank you for listening to me rant. Take care and I’ll wait patiently for your reply. Good day
