The Rome Area Heritage Foundation was created in 1973 by concerned community leaders to help identify and to preserve historic sites and artifacts.

All members enjoy fellowship, education and other enrichment opportunities by attending events throughout the year that feature tours and reports of recent restoration and renovation projects. Annual awards are presented to individuals, businesses or institutions that have completed projects within the previous year. Past RAHF projects include purchase and placement of permanent outdoor Civil War-era exhibitions on Jackson Hill, relocation of historic Robert Battey Home, establishment of a decorative arch commemorating Downtown Rome’s Opera Alley, placement of the last city horse watering trough on the Chieftains Museum grounds, and various historic plaques and signage throughout Floyd County.
Founded in 1973, the Rome Area Heritage Foundation was established to help identify and preserve historic sites and artifacts in the Rome-Floyd County, Ga.area. The volunteer-based nonprofit organization remains closely affiliated with governmental agencies and other nonprofit groups involved with the planning, implementation and preservation of local heritage and resources. Meetings of the Rome Area Heritage Foundation are held quarterly and the public is welcome to attend.
