The Etowah Valley Historical Society, Inc. was founded in 1972 by concerned owners of historical properties in Bartow County. From a membership of twenty-four, primarily interested in preserving the Etowah River Valley region of this county, the society has evolved into an organization of over 600 people dedicated to the promotion of historic education and preservation throughout Bartow County.
Today the Etowah Valley Historical Society (EVHS) celebrates the heritage of our unique area – ancient history and Civil War battlefields, coexisting with Victorian architecture, nestled in the richness of Georgia’s mountains and streams. Our major objective is to promote and enhance the education, awareness and preservation of the heritage and traditions of Bartow County.
We are located in the 1903 Gold-Domed Courthouse in the center of Cartersville. Please contact us for hours at 770-606-8862.
