Bartow History Museum
The Bartow History Museum preserves the history of Bartow County through permanent, changing and interactive exhibits. It focuses on the period from the early period of settlement, when the Cherokee people still inhabited the area, through 1950. People's home life and the industries (iron, textile production, agriculture, and arts at crafts) that supported them are represented. The museum also houses an archives that contains 1,000 books, pamphlets, magazines and other publications, in addition to photographs, documents and genealogy records. Records pertaining to local churches, businesses, schools and civic organizations can be found here as well.
