As a vital center for local historical research, the Rome Area History Center preserves, interprets, and exhibits collections portraying the history of Rome and the surrounding area. The permanent exhibits create a walk through time starting with 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 sources that paint Rome’s history.  The archives house photographs, books, and manuscripts pertaining to the region.

For Rome’s earliest, Native American history, please visit the Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home.
