Cartersville is a small southern town with a easygoing vibe. It`s the site of the Etowah Indian Mounds Historic Site, dating from 1000 A.D. The world`s first outdoor Coca-Cola sign, painted in 1894, is located in downtown Cartersville on Young Brothers Pharmacy`s wall. The county seat of Bartow County, Cartersville has a population of around 20,000. It became the seat after the city of Cassville was deliberately destroyed during the American Civil War. However, it wouldn’t become a city itself until 1872. The last 150 years have seen the city slowly evolve into a well-to-do Atlanta suburb that manages to combine several centuries of history with modern museum spaces and great outdoor sites.
