Bartow History Museum Opening a Door to the Past
(123)

Welcome to the Bartow History Museum Facebook Fan Page The Bartow History Museum offers many resources for the historian and casual visitor alike. The Museum is open Monday through Saturday. We offer special Exhibits throughout the year. Researching your family's history? Check out our Archives or give us a call. Do you know anything about the Etowah Mounds, the Cherokee or General Sherman? Why are Sam P. Jones, Rebecca Felton, and Joe Frank Harris still talked about in a neighborly fashion? If none of these names ring a bell – you should visit us to find out why they are an integral part of Bartow County!

This bisque match holder was recently donated by Beth Kennedy. It sat on a fireplace mantel and held the matches used to start fires. The match holder was made in Germany and dates to the early 1900s. It appears that the little girl may have had a blue dress and blue shoes at one time but the colors have faded over time.
