Rome Depot
County:Floyd
City:Rome
Type:Welcome Center, Railroad Depot
Railroad depot in Rome, GeorgiaAt the base of Civic Center Hill is the vintage 1901 Rome Railroad depot that today houses the Rome Visitors Center. Its a great place to get acquainted with the city. We stopped in and visited for a few minutes in January, 2002, to meet the staff. What a refreshing time! These are knowledgeable folks who can help you find the attractions in the city, whether its up the hill (Fort Norton), around the corner (Chieftain's Museum) or between the Rivers, the section of Rome that lays east of the confluence of the Etowah and Oostanaula Rivers to for the Coosa.

Location: Civic Center Hill
Directions: Take I-75 to exit 290 (Georgia 20). Turn left (west) on S.R. 20 and continue for 2.3 miles. At Highway 411 turn left, then make an immediate right on to the entrance ramp for Highway 41. Be careful at the end of this ramp and obey the current attempt at traffic control. Last time we went this way there was a stop sign. In 2.8 miles Highway 41 splits off. Continue on Highway 411 to Rome for 18.4 miles, exiting to the US 27 ramp. Continue north on Highway 27 to the depot (on right).
