Walking Tour: African American History in Downtown Cartersville 1870-1940
In partnership with the Cartersville Downtown Development Authority, the Etowah Valley Historical Society will host a presentation on the project Digital Walking Tour of Downtown Cartersville: African American Business Districts, 1870-1940.
Presenters will discuss the project’s origin, a timeline of the cultural history for African Americans in the downtown district, and how the project fits with larger research on African American history in Bartow County.
A guided walking tour of each site will be hosted after the presentation. Light refreshments will be served.
This event is free and open to the public.
This program is supported by a grant from Georgia Humanities.
