Have you ever wondered how each block of Broad Street in downtown Rome was constructed? Join the Rome Area History Center for the next installment of Broad Street Unearthed, set for Friday, September 10th at 6 pm. Admission is free, says Kristi Kent, Director of Communications for the Georgia’s Rome Office of Tourism, who adds that Selena Tilly, historian and archivist, will be exploring the origins of the 500 block during this particular lecture.
This will mark the final segment of the Broad Street Unearthed lecture series, which began in June and corresponds with the blocks on Broad Street toured in the Downtown History Tour held on the first Saturday of each month.
For more details, contact the Rome Area History Center at (706) 235-8051 or visit their website at www.romeareahistorycenter.org. The center is located at 305 Broad Street in downtown Rome.
Kent encourages Romans (and visitors to Rome) to visit the Georgia’s Rome website at www.romegeorgia.org to learn more about other tours and special events in the community.
