An Afternoon in Cartersville
Just an hour north of Atlanta nestled in the rolling hills of Northern Georgia lies the town of Cartersville. Surprisingly, we had never been to Cartersville. The town is so cool. The main street brings you back in time to the 1850's when the Cartersville became a town. Named after a wealthy landowner and entrepreneur Farish Carter. Lured with the vision of taking photos of the children in the cotton field which by the way were not planted this year, but were replaced by soybean we enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Swheat Cafe, enjoyed listening to Bluegrass music at the festival, and learned about our Native American heritage at the Etowah Indian Mounds. We also oohed and aahed over all the old houses. I would love to go back and see the Roselawn House and Museum a beautiful Victorian house owned by Sam P. Jones and would also like to tour the Booth western museum. I guess that means another trip to Cartersville. If you are in the area, a visit to Cartersville it totally worth it.
