The Rome Area History Museum was founded in 1996. The private, nonprofit organization promotes cultural and historical awareness of the Rome, GA area to the local community and visitors to Northwest Georgia. The principal goal of the Rome Area History Museum is to provide cultural and educational enrichment for residents and visitors through a visual chronological history of the area. Permanent exhibits include Native Americans and earlier settlers, through the Civil War, and then the development of Rome’s culture, life-ways and industries. The museum is filled with  original documents such as maps, blueprints, photos, personal letters and business records that paint a picture of Rome’s rich history.
