region in which visitors can stop and view the Historic Textile Mills which
were once one of the South’s chief industries.
The trail generally follows the route of US 27 through the counties of Heard,
Carroll, Troup, and Haralson. This is a regional community project
spearheaded by the University of West Georgia’s Center for Public History.
With the advent of the Textile industry, most of the former companies have
left behind numerous abandoned or underdeveloped buildings. The trail uses these
buildings as historic sites that visitors or local tourists can visit and
immerse themselves in the rich history of this industry in the West
Georgia region. The Trail highlights all of the aspects of the textile
industry in this region, including cotton mills, hosiery mills, the apparel
industry, man-made fiber manufacturers, and carpet mills
