This museum has quilts more than a hundred years old--some with pieces of a Confederate uniform sewn in--and examples of bright,contemporary art. It celebrates the West Georgia textile heritage, from socks to suits to fabrics, a study in vibrant domestic history that draws visitors from all over the U.S and from foreign nations.

We walked the Heritage Trail today. Not a strenuous walk but would be tough on a hot day. We had temps in the mid 70's. we started at stop 2 and ended at stop 1. Stop 1 is in quad 2 of Adamson Square. Fascinating history of cotton mills in Carrollton. Stop 4 is a little bit of a walk but the mill is a beautiful building. Best to start at Stop 2 and end at stop 1 so you can enjoy shopping or a restaurant in Adamson Square at the end of your trip.

Starting from downtown Adamson Square in Carrollton, walk down Bradley Street. There are signs along the way which are filled with history and pointing out landmarks along the way. The trail takes you from downtown's main square - past the old textile mill buildings (one of which now houses the South East Quilt and Textile Museum) and then to the train depot (which has now been refurbished). From here, cross the tracks and you go up South Street (past some beautiful houses) and then head back up Maple Street to the square. There are multiple signs posted along the way and lots of old photographs on the signs dating from the turn of the 1900's and before. It is a great walk to stretch your legs and see some of the old Cotton / Textile town of Carrollton. When you arrive back at the square, pop in to any of the many restaurants (my favorite is the corner cafe) for some refreshments before heading along your way. The walk itself is well sign posted and it's free. It's full of interesting historical details (I grew up in the town - and was surprised to learn lots I didn't know!) There are other trails that are able to be driven (further outside the city - check the website) and you can really get a feel for Georgia's history of cotton, textiles, and localised industry.
