Broad Street Unearthed

Free Admission!

Have you ever wondered how Rome's Broad Street blocks were constructed? Join us for The Broad Street Unearthed Lecture Series! Each month covers a different block of Broad Street.

Selena Tilly, historian and archivist for the Rome Area History Center will be the speaker. Selena is a lifelong Roman and her family has called Floyd County home since 1827. She has studied, collected, and researched Rome and Floyd County history for over 40 years, and has been associated with the history center since it first opened in 1996.

Through photographs, documents, maps, and other information, we will explore how each block was built up from the time of the Native Americans to today, along with how the buildings and streets that surround them changed over time.

This lecture series will correspond with the block that we tour on the Downtown History Tour each month (1st Saturday of the month).
.
The lecture will be held at 6 PM in the upstairs room at the Rome Area History Center.
