Floyd County

Floyd County was carved out of Cherokee County in 1832 and named for General John Floyd, Indian fighter. Territory for Chattooga and Gordon counties were later taken from Floyd. The county seat, Rome, is built on the ancient site of Chiaha which Hernando DeSoto had noted in his travels. It is at the confluence of the Etowah and Oostanaula rivers which form the Coosa River.
