The city of Euharlee, just west of Cartersville, is home to one of the oldest covered bridge in Georgia, as well as a picturesque 1850s village. Its signature bridge, on the National Register of Historic Sites, is open daily.
Other sites to explore include the Blacksmith Shop, Black Pioneers Cemetery, Euharlee Welcome Center & History Museum, Grist Mill Ruins adjacent to the covered bridge, and the Granary. Also see the Calaboose, where chicken theives and other petty criminals were housed back in the day, Obsorne Park along Euharlee Creek, and Joe Cowan Park on Euharlee Five Forks Rd.
The name Euharlee is derived from a well-known Indian name "Eufaula" and means "she laughs as she runs." The area has been continuously occupied since 800 BCE and contains archeological traces of earlier civilizations.
Euharlee was settled in the 1830s and was first known as Burge's Mill. In 1852, it became incorporated as Euharleyville. In 1870, a new charter was enacted, changing the name to Euharlee.
