Local Museums Partner to Promote Native American History

The Rome Area History Museum, in partnership with Chieftains Museum / Major Ridge Home, has a new exhibit on display.

These exhibit panels, that will now be on display at the Rome Area History Museum, explore early Native American life in the Floyd County area, including a model of a 16th century Native American village and information about Hernando de Soto’s travels through the southeastern United States from 1539 to 1542. Featured in the exhibit is a 16th century replica Spanish sword and helmet created by Bob Harris. The sword is a replica of the sword hilt found by the rivers locally.
