City of Adairsville
Adairsville - once known as Oothcalooga Village and Adair Station, is steeped in history and charm. Nestled in a cozy setting, we invite you to experience a span of American history of a small southern town which includes its beginning as a pre-existing Indian settlement.
The Civil War (1861-1865) found Adairsville a town of major strategic importance since it had been designated a terminus for the Western and Atlantic Railroad and thus contained large machine shops and a roundhouse owned by the railroad. Through this line came arms, munitions, and other supplies from the factories in Atlanta destined for the front ines in Virginia.
