Southern Hills of the Historic High Country



The Southern Hills of the Historic High Country Tourist Guide can help you plan your visit so that your experience is complete and enjoyable. The childhood fantasy games of Cowboys and Indians come alive on the Chieftains Trail, a 200 mile drive tour that takes you through various historic Native American sites. This is where you realize how real it all is and not just a figment of a 5 year old's imagination. Some of these are the Chieftains Museum in Rome, the Etowah Indian Mounds in Cartersville, and the Funk Heritage Centre in Waleska. Be prepared to be awed by the solemn Etowah Indian Mounds Historic site where about a century ago, a vibrant community of Native Americans thrived in a noble civilization in harmony with nature. A flat topped earthen mound about 63 foot high, bears witness to the grandeur of a culture which still retains its mystery. You just have to close your eyes for a minute to imagine the boisterous whoops of the braves, the excited chit chat of the squaws, the nobles gathered around the fire, and the Big Chief in his fabulous head gear commanding respect as naturally as drawing breath. This tour is truly enlightening and of infinite interest to anyone wanting to know more about this wonderful page of Native Indian history before the colonial chapter began.

A Southern Hills of the Historic High Country guide would surely come in handy when you are planning your vacation. There are ever so many nature parks, cultural events, historic sites and monuments besides a host of unique experiences that you may not have known existed unless you refer one of these invaluable guides. For instance you have probably heard of the Great Locomotive Chase escapade immortalized by a Disney movie of the same name. Now, come visit Adairsville, the place where it all happened. There is a festival to commemorate this historic event and if you are visiting in the fall season it will fit in nicely with your plans. Learn all about the outcome and other vignettes of history that will truly increase your appreciation of this land. The place is full of civil war memorabilia that gives you an authentic experience and may make old timers misty eyed.

While you're here there's also the Barnsley Garden Resort with its spectacularly beautiful grounds, heirloom gardens, and well appointed suites. It might interest you to know that the original owner, Sir Godfrey Barnsley was reported to be the inspiration for the character of Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind. There's plenty more for a southern high country hills tourist to do. The Bartow History Center, Cartersville Rose Lawn Museum with its annual arts festival and Cooper's Furnace on the banks of the Etowah, as well as the Euharlee Covered Bridge with its History Museum are all sites you really must cover.

A tourist in the Southern Hills of the Historic High Country is never far from nature, history, and culture at any point of his vacation, but closer exploration might definitely be warranted for a fuller appreciation. An updated tourist guide will give you exact details that can fill up the blanks in your itinerary and increase the pleasure quotient of your vacation to a considerable degree. If you find Native Indian events exciting, in October you may get to witness the Cowboys & Indian Days, the Etowah Valley Indian Festival, New Echota Frontier Days, and the New Salem Mountain Festival.
