Make Time for Some of Rome’s Best Tourist Attractions and Historic Landmarks
Sitting at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains, there are several rivers running through the city of Rome, GA; the landscape inspired the founders of the city to give it the name Rome, after Italy’s capital. It had its early beginning as a farming, marketing and trading city due to its proximity to the rivers and its access to Gulf Coast.
The land that the city, today, sits on, was formerly inhabited by local Natives, namely the Cherokee people. Therefore, it has many historical sites and museums dedicated to the Native Americans namely, The Chieftains Museum or Major Ridge Home, Myrtle Hill Cemetery which is a scenic hillside cemetery and the Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum.
