Rome is a city located in northwest Georgia in the foothills of the Appalachians. It has a population of approximately 35,000 and is the largest city in Floyd County. The city of Rome serves as the regional hub of the area. It's a beautiful little city, built on seven hills with a river running through it, which was the inspiration for the town's name. There is a replica statue of Romulus and Remus, nursing from a mother wolf, a symbol of the European city, which was a gift from Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in 1929. Recreational activities in Rome include a multi-trail system for walking and biking, which connects several major destinations within the community. Rome is also home to several museums and historic attractions, such as the Historic Clock Tower on Neely Hill, which is just one of the places listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Museums include the Martha Berry Museum, Rome Area History Museum, Chieftains Museums and Rome Braves, a Class A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. The city of Rome is near the Etowah Indian Mounds, which is a 54-acre archaeological, pre-historic site in Bartow County. It's a designated National Historic Landmark, and is the most intact Mississippi culture site in the southeastern U.S.
