PUBLIC NOTICE
Polk County Re-Evaluation

Polk County has hired a qualified vendor, Georgia Mass Appraisal Solutions and Services (GMASS), to perform a total county-wide revaluation of property values, which will include commercial, industrial, residential and agricultural properties. The purpose of this revaluation is to update and equalize all property values because our Sales Ratio is below state standards. Without correcting these values Polk County will be subject to financial penalties.

To complete these revaluations, personnel from the Polk County Tax Assessors Office and GMASS will be inspecting properties throughout Polk County in vehicles clearly marked with a Polk County Seal. Appraisers are not required to do inside inspections of any residences or buildings. If citizens have question or concerns, please contact the Polk County Tax Assessors Office at 770-749-2108 between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Created from parts of Floyd and Paulding counties, Polk County was named for President James K. Polk.

Cedartown carries the same name as a Creek Indian town previously found in the area. The name comes from the many Red Cedar trees around the county.

Rockmart is at the end of a state-owned abandoned railroad line to Atlanta. Polk County has over a 15 mile paved section of the Silver Comet Trail. The first section of the trail starts in Paulding County and heads west to Polk County. The second part of the trail runs from Coot's Lake Road to historical Downtown Rockmart. The important part of the trail, located in Cedartown, is not paved and still has railroad tracks on the trail. This part of the Silver Comet Trail connects Georgia to the Chief Ladiga Trail in Alabama.

Cedartown's Big Spring is the largest natural limestone spring in the South.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places is the downtown district of Cedartown, an example of 1890s architecture. Also included is the Hawkes Children's Library, built in 1921. It is now a museum.
