Georgia – Cartersville: Booth Museum of Western Art

We happened upon the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia, in 2011 on a return trip from Atlanta.  We still had plenty of time left that day and the museum’s name appeared on one of those brown signs alongside the highway…the signs that denote cultural attractions in the vicinity.  The collection was so largeContinue reading “Georgia – Cartersville: Booth Museum of Western Art”
