Historic Jackson Hill was the location of Fort Norton, an earthen fortification system which defended Rome during the Civil War. During the Great Depression, the area was redeveloped by the Works Progress Administration, which included the Rome Civic Center, an amphitheater (now the Labyrinth of Rome), several rock bridges and more. Today, winding trails provide a quiet getaway just blocks from Downtown Rome. Outdoor exhibits include the Boswell Cabin Trailhead, a cotton gin, replicas of Civil War-era cannons, the Noble Brothers Foundry Lathe and a Corliss Steam Engine. Interpretive markers tell the story of the Civil War in Rome. Parking is available in the Rome-Floyd Visitor Center parking lot.
