Acworth’s historic downtown once served as the community’s primary central business district, in the days before the automobile made possible the development of commercial strip centers and shopping malls which could be located farther from the core of the city.
Present day Main Street is located on what began as a trading route used by the Cherokee Indians, and by the 1920s, it had evolved into a major North-South thoroughfare known as the Dixie Highway (later replaced in the modern era by Highway 41 and Interstate 75).
Part of the historic area of the city is being considered for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places, an honorary designation given by the United States Department of the Interior. Acworth’s downtown buildings still retain many of the architectural details commonly associated with commercial buildings constructed in the late nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, and serve as a physical reminder of a point in time when the downtown was the focus of small town life.
