The Rome-Floyd E.C.O. Center showcases the diversity of the Etowah, Coosa and Oostanaula rivers that converge in the center of Historic Downtown Rome. Exhibits feature live aquatic life and wildlife from Coosa River watershed. Large tanks showcase native fish species, including the highly endangered sturgeon. In operation as the E.C.O. Center since 2011, the LEED Gold-certified building opened in 1893 as a freshwater pumping station for the City of Rome. The original brick structure in Ridge Ferry Park transported water from the Oostanaula River to the filtration complex atop Jackson Hill.
