Bartow History Museum Opening a Door to the Past
(94)

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!

Thank you to all who have served!

Upon further observation of the weather, we have decided to postpone tonight’s cemetery tour. We had hope to conduct the tour, but in consideration of everyone’s safety, feel that it is best to hold off until further notice.

Thank you for your interest in the tour and for your understanding.
