Save Acworth History Foundation - a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of our city and the community of Acworth, GA. Our goal is to collect video histories, photos and artifacts that reflect our history as a railroad town, a mill town, and the center of an agricultural community. These will be displayed and available daily in the downtown Depot Park History Center.
