The West Georgia Textile Heritage Trail (WGTHT) explores the rich heritage of the textile industry in west and northwest Georgia, from Columbus to Dalton. Following along the Highway 27 corridor, the Trail highlights historic communities that played a vital role in the cotton, hosiery, apparel, chenille, and carpet industries.

Discover community stories, see exhibits featuring textile history, explore historic buildings that represent our region’s heritage, visit local restaurants and shops, and find new adventures along the Trail!
