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.
This event is free and open to the public.
The program is supported by a grant from Georgia Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
