The display will stay up until May 26.

The Rome Area History Center is now managed by the Georgia’s Rome Office of Tourism. The center is currently closed for renovations, but will reopen in July 2020. The Georgia’s Rome Gift Shop inside the center is open during renovations; guests can access the gift shop through the building's back entrance located on Tribune Street.
