Floyd County is nestled in the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, with the City of Rome as its county seat. Our home is one of scenic beauty with miles of stately forests, picturesque lakes, and of course, our rivers. Rome is built around three rivers. The Etowah and Oostanaula join in the heart of the city to form the mighty Coosa. Rome is a city with a proud heritage. We look with pride to our many historic landmarks which provide a link to our forefather's pioneering spirit.
