Come to the Bartow History Museum to visit our special Temporary Exhibition: “We Did This Ourselves: The Community's Effort to Elect a Governor”!
In November 1982, Cartersville resident Joe Frank Harris was elected governor of the State of Georgia. In large part, it was through his supporters in Bartow County that led the grass roots campaign that put him in this important role.
Thirty years later, Bartow History Museum features an exhibition that looks back at Harris’ political career and the tremendous effort put forth by the people of Bartow County during the gubernatorial campaign.
This Temporary Exhibition will be on display until February 16, 2013.
* It can be viewed at the Bartow History Museum, during regular Museum hours (Monday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.; closed Sunday). *
Free to members; included in the price of admission for not-yet-members
