Bartow County Oral Histories

In 2005-2006, a county wide inventory of Bartow’s historic sites was completed. One of the unexpected findings of the inventory was the number of individuals that have an important story to tell. The sense of urgency to document these stories was shared by the Etowah Valley Historical Society and the Bartow History Museum.  For this purpose, the Oral History Committee was formed.

The mission of the Oral History Committee is to preserve local history by means of audio and video recordings that will be available for historical research.  Our oral histories are physical links to the past that provide meaning to the present and continuity to the future.

Serving as the project’s first co-chairmen were Trey Gaines and Genie Jolly Certain.
