Bartow County Reviews

Cartersville, the largest community in Bartow County is a beautiful little city. Great restaurants, churches, parks, schools and neighborhoods. People are friendly. With places like Barnsley Gardens, known world wide, The Booth Western Art Museum, and Tellus Science Museum, there is something (entertainment) for everyone. These places also offer new job opportunities. Crime is low. The downside is utilities are high and so are taxes compared to other towns in the state. Traffic is also a problem inside the city limits.
