Text of sign:


Polk County


Created December 20, 1851, and named for President James Knox Polk.  Cedartown is fittingly named for the trees which 

flourish in this beautiful valley.  The city is a railroad center, has a thriving textile industry, and a large paper mill.  Rockmart, thirteen

 miles to the east, has textile mills that give the area much employment and a large payroll, and as well is the center of portland

cement production.
