Located in the heart of the Coosa Valley area of North Georgia, Rockmart's name was derived from the two words Rock and Market, for the town was once a scene of roofing slate business. This area has an abundance of slate, limestone, iron shale, and clay. Now, it’s one of the cities along the multi-purpose Silver Comet Trail, a favorite for locals and visitors alike. Many visitors travel to Rockmart in July for the annual Homespun Festival. Nearby sites of interest include the historic community of Van Wert, Cedartown Performing Arts Center, and more to be discovered on the Polk County Historic Driving Tour.
