Native Americans, the Civil War, a First Lady of the United States, and a college with the largest campus in the United States are just a few of the themes with strong ties to Rome. Chieftains Museum is located in the former home of Major Ridge, an important Cherokee leader of his day. The museum may be toured Wednesdays through Saturdays. The Rome Area History Center on Broad Street and Myrtle Hill Cemetery are great places to go to understand Rome’s role in the Civil War. The cemetery is also where U.S. President Woodrow Wilson’s first wife, Ellen Axson Wilson, is buried.

The Berry College campus is a beautiful place to drive through. Be sure to find the eagle’s nest near the entrance and the Possum Trot Church in an area where history is preserved. The influence of its founder, Martha Berry, is felt throughout the town of Rome, and a museum dedicated to her is another must-visit destination.

Other things to do also include driving to the Clock Tower, shopping on Broad Street, playing or watching tennis and pickleball, and spending time at the Rome-Floyd ECO Center learning about the area’s ecology.
