Two bronze plaques will be unveiled on Wednesday morning to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the addition of the Between the Rivers Historic District to the National Register of Historic Places. The unveiling will take place with two brief ceremonies that morning beginning at 11 am.
The markers were funded by the Between the Rivers Association and the Downtown Development Authority.
The Between the Rivers Historic District was officially placed in the register on June 9, 1983 by the United States Department of the Interior. According to a release from the Between the Rivers Association, the area was chosen based on its historic and architectural significance, chronicling the residential, commercial and industrial development of Rome.
The first marker will be revealed in the heart of the downtown residential area at the intersection of East 2nd Street and East 5th Avenue along the exterior brick steps to the City Clocktower. The second will be unveiled shortly thereafter at Mitchell Plaza on the West 3rd Avenue facade of the Rome Area History Museum.
For more information about the unveiling, call Amanda Carter with the Rome Downtown Development Authority at (706) 236-4520.
