Darlington's picturesque location among the seven hills and three rivers of Rome, Ga., has provided a beautiful setting to live, learn, work and play since the town was founded and subsequently named at Darlington's Home-on-the-Hill in 1834. A central location between three major southern cities — Atlanta, Birmingham, Ala. and Chattanooga, Tenn. — permits the city to be a convenient hop, skip and jump away from anywhere within the region, including three international airports.
Just minutes from the Darlington campus is a beautifully-preserved Victorian district in Historic Downtown Rome. The riverside downtown area features locally-owned restaurants, boutique shops, hotels, trails, historic homes, renovated lofts and a vibrant nightlife. Throughout the year, Rome and Floyd County play host to annual festivals, parades, community theater productions, music events, sports championship games and much more.
Floyd County is the home to a population of over 97,600. The area boasts strong industrial and healthcare sectors, and is a cultural hub for Northwest Georgia. Floyd County is the location of several higher education institutions, including Berry College, Georgia Highlands College, Georgia Northwestern Technical College and Shorter University.
Unrivaled southern hospitality, a strong sense of community, and a real understanding of why our Cherokee forebears called this area the “Enchanted Land” await you in Georgia’s Rome.
