Bartow County, Georgia By Michele Rodgers, History Center Bartow, Bartow History Center Cover Image


Bartow County has a history as intriguing as it is long. This beautiful part of northwest Georgia developed rapidly after 1838, when the Cherokee were removed along the "Trail of Tears" and settlers poured in from Virginia and the Carolinas. The energy of these settlers, combined with the arrival of the railroad, made Bartow a proud and prosperous
county by the mid-nineteenth century. This was not to last: the War between the States turned life upside down, and at the close of this great conflict
in 1865, the county bore almost no resemblance to the
successful place it had been just a few years before. These tumultuous years also saw the development of photography, and the photographers that recorded life in Bartow County from the Reconstruction era to the 1960s were unknowingly
creating images that are treasured today as uniquely accessible historical documents.
