Nestled in the Oothcalooga Valley, Adairsville was the first Georgia town to be listed in its entirety on the National Register of Historic Places (December 1987). Today, visitors can see the original depot that witnessed the pursuit of the steam locomotive "General" of the famous Great Locomotive Chase during the Civil War. The 1847 Railroad Depot is home to the Adairsville Welcome Center.
Browse the antiques and gifts at the 1902 Stock Exchange & Public Square Opera House, and enjoy lunch at Maggie Mae's Tea Room.

Just five miles outside Adairsville is Barnsley Resort, an 1840s estate, where guests can retreat to a luxurious stay, including dining, spa, gardens, and challenging play for par on the Fazio-designed golf course.
