“Silver Comet Trail”
Town of Cedartown GA
Cedartown’s well-defined historical district, featuring turn-of-the-century buildings, is the centerpiece of the town. Visit the Welcome Center at the Cedartown Depot, discover the Sterling Holloway museum (you know him better as the voice of Winnie the Pooh) and take in one of the Cedartown Performing Arts Center shows. The Silver Comet Trail runs through town.
Cedartown, the county seat for Polk County, was incorporated on February 8, 1854. The city takes its name from the abundance of red cedar trees that once bordered the county line. The city also houses other natural wonders, like Big Spring, the largest natural limestone spring in the South. The downtown district of Cedartown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of the city’s 1890s style architecture. The West Cinema Theatre, built in 1941 in art deco style, is still in use today.
Stroll down Main Street, dine in one of the restaurants and shop the quaint stores while enjoying how the past meets the present. You can also enjoy a leisurely bike or walk on the Silver Comet Trail that runs through the town. Stop in the Cedartown Welcome Center located off the Silver Comet Trail to see some of the relics of one of Cedartown’s famous residents, Sterling Holloway, the voice of Winnie the Pooh.
